Campfire Treat - Woofems

My DH stumbled upon a new campfire treat idea on Pinterest, which worked wonderfully! Everyone who tries them loves them and they are so easy to make. Basically, you take refrigerator biscuits (such as Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits, small size, NOT flaky) and wrap them over the end of a dowel and toast them over the hot coals, just like you would a marshmallow. When they are done you pull them off and fill them with pudding or pie filling. You then top them with whipped cream. You then have a little hand pie that is delicious and fun to eat! I will let DH post the details about how to make the Woofem sticks and how to prepare them for toasting the Woofems.

What a ripping idea!! I would certainly be interested in what he does to prep his sticks. I could certainly see some stuffed with chili a little melted cheese.

Thanks for sharing, Gator.

That is a great idea! You could top with a little cheddar cheese. We have also thought of filling them with sausage and cheese, or, if you like eggs, scrambled eggs with sausage would work well too. We used Comstock blueberry and cherry pie fillings, which were delicious. Let's see what other kinds of fillings folks come up with.

Had these a couple of weeks ago - my sister-in-law made sticks for all 10 of us on the trip. Sticks are the length of a normal hot dog roasting stick. The handle is simply a 3/8 or 1/2 inch dowel rod. The working end is a 1 or 1 1/4 inch dowel approximately 5 inches long. Drill an appropriately sized hole in one end of the large dowel, insert "handle" with a smidge of glue (or pressure fit if your hole is the right size).

Prior to using, she read to soak in vegetable oil to prevent sticking. We did with and without soaking and it seemed to work fine either way. Regardless of soaking or not, we got better results spraying with cooking oil prior to putting the biscuit on.

To cook, press the biscuit out nice and flat. Place it centered over the end of the stick. Gently pull the dough down to fully cover the large dowel. Keeping the "WOODEN" stick out of direct flame, heat until nice and golden brown.

Hope that is helpful. . .and yes, they are delicious either with sweet or savory fillings.
Brian

Sorry - no pics yet. Will try to get some next trip out.

Thanks for the details, Brian. Kevin made the dowel sticks pretty long so you don't have to get too close to the fire. He soaked the working ends in oil and then we spray them with Pam. We have to keep smoothing the biscuit down over the stick because it wants to recoil some. It sounds like yours are rather long, if you pull it down all the way to the end of the dowel. Ours end up being about two to three inches long. We will have to try them "dry" to see if it makes a difference.
