This is a brillant idea I picked up on Facebook, making a christmas tree out of puff pastry. This is so easy to make, festive and versatile. Feel free to use your favourite filling.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 5 servings

Ingredients
2 sheets of puff pastry
Nutella
1 egg, slightly beaten
Almond meal (optional)
Icing sugar


Method
Preheat oven 180 degrees.
Put the 2 puff pastry (still frozen) on top of each other, cut the sides to form a tree. Use the left over pastry to make star shapes with a cookie cutter.



Leave the top sheet aside. Spread nutella on the other and sprinkle with some almond meal.



Cover with the other sheet. Cut each sides (see picture), brush with beaten egg and twirl each of the branches.



Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and puffed.



Sprinkle with icing sugar.
