Puff Pastry Christmas Tree Pull-Apart

Puff Pastry Christmas Tree Pull-Apart

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 2 sheets gluten free puff pastry
  • ¼ cup low fat grated cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 3-4 tbsp sauce of choice 

Note: given puff pastry is so versatile and quite neutral in taste, you could go for a sweet or savoury topping. We’ve tried pesto and pizza sauce and they’re both equally as delicious (also provide a nice Christmas touch being green or red)!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place one sheet of puff pastry onto the prepared baking tray and top with desired sauce and cheese.
  3. Place the second sheet of puff pastry on top and press gently to seal the two sheets together.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut out the shape of a Christmas tree and then even slits on both sides, leaving the centre intact (as pictured).
  5. Twist each strip two or three times.
  6. Brush with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds (if desired).
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
