Finally! I’m posting the step by step pics for the Icky Intestines–Check it out, pic by pic after the jump.
So there you have the dough, all pieced together forming a long assed soon to be intestine.
Next, you’ll want to add your filling of choice down the center. Tip: Mine is wayyy too full. I had to take about half of it out to get the thing closed, and it *still* got a little messy.
After laying out the filling, you’ll want to pinch the pastry together. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t pretty, the seam goes down anyway, and any tears can be easily repaired by stretching the dough a little. I know this because I screwed up several times. There was swearing involved. Alot of it.
I just can’t get over how freaking long this sucker is.
Now, carefully, (you’ll have to move your baking sheet along so that the intestine doesn’t break) form the intestine in the parchment lined pan, forming an intestinal shape as you go. How often have you used *that* sentence in your life? I’ve used it more times that you might think. lmfao
Fix any tears by smooshing the pastry back together. They’re intestines fer cryin out loud, who cares if they’re not perfectly perfect?
Brush a little beaten egg onto the intestines.
Now you’ll want to mix your color—I use about a tablespoon or 2 of red with 2 drops of blue for a nice deep red. (hey! gratuitous dog shot in the background!)
Using a small paintbrush, paint the blood onto the intestines.
Look at that gory pan-o-guts!
Now pop em into the oven to bake…you can find the full recipe and instructions HERE.
