Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Aged Cheddar, Muenster or Parmesan can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

Cornucopia:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Fold a 36 x 18-inches piece heavy-duty aluminum foil in half widthwise. Roll up foil for cornucopia, loose cone shape, starting at a corner with opening about 8 x 6 inches. Fold extra foil inside cone. Stuff cone inside with additional foil. Bend tail end up into desired shape.
  3. Place cone on prepared pan. Coat foil with cooking spray. Unroll one tube bread dough on a lightly floured cutting board. Cut dough widthwise into six strips, each 1 1/2-inches wide. Keep remaining dough refrigerated.
  4. Wrap one strip around tail end of foil; pinch ends to seal. Wrap strips around foil, overlapping and stretching dough to cover. Repeat cutting and wrapping remaining dough; set aside two strips.
  5. Twist reserved strips; pinch ends. Place on cornucopia opening, stretching to fit if necessary. Pinch dough at seams. Brush dough with egg wash.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. (Pan will be hot!) Combine butter and garlic powder. Brush butter mixture on bread. Sprinkle with parmesan and rosemary. Bake for 10-15 minutes longer or until deep golden brown, covering loosely with foil if necessary. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Cheeseboard:

  1. Carefully loosen and remove foil from cornucopia; place on a serving board. Add the pears, grapes and figs. Arrange the cheddar, parmesan and muenster on the board. Fill in board with almonds, pecans, cashews, bay leaves and rosemary.
