- 1 egg (whisked with 1 teaspoon of water to make an egg wash)
- poppy seeds (1/4-1/3 cup)
- 5 long slices of cheese (white or orange, 1/2"-3/4" wide by 6" long)
- pesto chicken salad: 2 cups of diced chicken breast, 1/3 cup pesto, 1/3 cup mayo mixed together
- pizza cutter or knife

- 5 metal cream horn molds (available online and at baking supply stores)
- pastry brush

Cut Crescent Dough Into Shapes
Dust your work surface very lightly with flour. Open and unroll the crescent dough, flattening it evenly. Use a piece of paper or card stock to make a template: Create a triangle with these dimensions: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 x 4 inches. On the longest side, make a curved line instead of straight. (The template should look like a slice of pizza.) Cut 5 triangles using a pizza wheel or knife and 5 circles using the round cookie cutter.
Wrap one triangle around each cream horn mold, pinching the sides together so they won't puff up and apart during the baking process.
Roll in Poppy Seeds
Place poppy seeds in a shallow dish. Brush cones of dough with egg wash, then roll them in poppy seeds, being sure to completely cover the cone. If you have bare spots, carefully add more egg wash, then press the poppy seeds onto the dough with your fingers. Brush the rounds of dough on one side and all around the edge with egg wash. Set the egg washed side of the dough into the poppy seeds and press gently. Be sure to press poppy seeds all around the edge of the dough, as well.
