  • 1
    Grease 2 large cookie sheets. Roll dough on lightly floured surface into rectangle, 16x8 inches. Spread pesto over dough. Cut crosswise into sixteen 1-inch strips.
  • 2
    Twist each strip. Place on cookie sheet; form into candy cane shape. Arrange strips of pepper over twists in dough to cover pesto and look like striped candy cane.
  • 3
    Beat egg white and water; brush over breadsticks. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg white mixture. Cover and let rise in warm place about 30 minutes or until double.
  • 4
    Heat oven to 375°. Brush again with egg white mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Use a drained 2-ounce jar of diced pimientos instead of the roasted red bell peppers.
  • Do not use frozen white bread dough in this recipe. It will not hold the cane shape as well when the dough is rising.
