Braided Bread Napkin Rings

Here's a fresh idea for your napkin rings this Thanksgiving!

What you'll need:
-Cardboard tube (paper towel or toilet paper tubes)
-Tin Foil
-Bread dough (store bought or home made)
-Cooking Spray

The how to:

-Wrap your cardboard tubes in tin foil and spray with cooking spray.

-Take your dough and roll it into three long strips.
Pinch the ends together and start braiding it. Or two long strips and twist it.
(Make sure your strips are more on the thin side)

-Wrap your braid around your foil tube and pinch the ends together.

-Place the braids on a greased cookie sheet, pinched side down. Cover and let raise for 30 minutes to one hour. Don't let them rise too much. Then bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Or until golden brown. (Check on them after 10 minutes)

-Once out of the oven spread butter on the rings while still hot. Then let them cool.

Gently slide the rings off the foil tubes and slide your napkin inside.
