Makes 6 servings
16 baby spinach leaves
pilsbury cresent rolls tube
orange food coloring (or red and yellow to make orange)
about 1 cups worth of egg salad
There are many different ways to make the “cones” for the carrots. The easiest would be cream horns (which you can find at Michaels craft store), but the cheapest is aluminum foil! Using a little bit of your imagination, craft 6 horn shapes out of aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Preheat oven as specified on back of cresent roll package. Unroll cresent rolls into one large, flat sheet and pinch together all of the perferations. Cut into six pieces lengthwise (evenly, cut in half, then cut the halves in half). Roll each slice into a noodle and then starting at the tip of each cone, wrap 1 noodle around each, placing on a cookie sheet.
Whisk egg in small bowl until frothy. Using a basting brush, brush each cone before inserting in oven. Cook as directions on package instruct.
Make food coloring (or put some orange in a small dish). Using a basting brush or pastry brush, paint cones with food coloring once out of the oven. Let cool.
Once cooled, remove tin foil from cones. Fill cones with egg salad and push 3 spinach leaves into the ends of each.
Serve same day. They do not taste as good the next day and won’t keep longer than that!
