Woven Breadstick Wreaths
For an even more festive decoration, sprinkle the top of each breadstick wreath with either poppy seeds, sesame seeds, or coarse salt -- or any combination of the three -- just before baking.
Basket-weave butter pats are an elegant extra. To make them, spread a layer of softened butter onto parchment paper, and chill. Fit a pastry bag with a basket-weave tip, fill it with softened butter, and pipe it onto the cold butter base. Chill again, then cut the butter into squares.
