Ham and Cheese Spiders

1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks, separated into 12 breadsticks
1 cup chopped fully cooked ham
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 tsp mayo
5 slices process American cheese
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon water
2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
1 teaspoon poppy seeds

1.On  greased baking sheet, pat  biscuits into 3-1/2-in. circles.

2.Cut one breadstick in half lengthwise, then in half widthwise, creating four strips. Repeat nine times (save remaining breadsticks for another use). Position eight strips of dough around each biscuit to resemble spider legs; twist and press lightly onto baking sheet. Tuck a 1/2-in. foil ball under each dough strip so it stands up in the center.

3.Combine the ham, onion, butter mayo and mustard; spoon 2 tablespoons onto each biscuit circle.

4.Fold cheese slices into quarters and place over ham mixture.

5.Pat remaining biscuits into 4-in. circles; place over filling. Pinch edges to seal.

6.In a small bowl, beat egg yolk and water. Brush over tops of biscuits and breadsticks.

7.On each spider, position two olive slices for eyes.
8.Sprinkle with poppy seeds.

9.Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
