Spotted Crescent Dogs How-To
Your step-by-step guide to making the most adorable crescent dogs ever!
Step 1: Prepare the Dough
Unroll 1 container of crescent dough on your work surface. Divide the dough into 4 rectangles (each rectangle will make 1 crescent dog); pinch the diagonal perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle in half crosswise. Cut one half of each rectangle into 6 thin strips.
Step 2: Make the Body
Wrap the uncut half of each rectangle around a hot dog; pinch the seams to seal. Place seam-side down on cookie sheet.
Step 3: Make the Paws and Tail
For each dog, fold four of the thin strips in half; make two small cuts at one end of each strip to form the toes. Fold another strip in half; fold in half again. Twist slightly to form the tail.
Step 4: Attach the Paws and Tail
Press the feet onto the body to adhere. Press the tail onto the top rear of the body.
Step 5: Attach the Ears and Collar
Press down lightly on each end of the remaining dough strip to form the ears; attach to the head. Place 1 thin slice of roasted red bell pepper behind the ears to make the collar.
Step 6: Decorate with Poppy Seeds
Lightly wet your finger with water; press into bowl of poppy seeds. Press seeds on the dog to form spots. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown; cool 5 minutes.
