Christmas Tree Treats

Looking for treats shaped like the Christmas tree, we got you covered. Sugary treats made with Jus-Rol puff pastry sheets are here to save the day!

Ingredients
  • 1 x 320 g pack Jus-Rol, Ready rolled puff pastry
  • 60g pecan nuts, blitzed until finely chopped
  • 20g light soft brown sugar
  • 30g softened butter
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Icing sugar, to dust
Techniques Used
  • How to Roll Puff Pastry
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C (fan)/Gas 6
  2. Unroll the pastry sheet, cut off a ¼ from the length and set aside.
  3. Combine the nuts, sugar, butter and cinnamon in a bowl, mix well and spread over the remaining ¾ of the pastry.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut strips of pastry from the shorter side (width), approximately 2cm wide.
  5. Carefully pick up a strip of pastry and fold backwards and forth on itself, starting wider at the bottom(5-6cm) and narrower at the top, like a Christmas tree (see image for reference).
  6. Take a wooden skewer and push through the middle of each layer, making sure that the layers are spread out evenly. Leave enough skewer at the top for the star! Repeat the process, until you have 10-12 trees.
  7. Take the remaining ¼ sheet of pastry and cut out 10/12 small stars with a small cookie cutter. Thread the top of the skewer through the pastry star.
  8. Transfer the trees to a baking tray and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the pastry is puffed and golden.

Sprinkle with a light dusting of icing sugar to serve.

Tips
  • Take the pastry out of the fridge and remove from the packaging approximately 10 minutes before you are ready to use it, as it will be easier to work with.
  • You could make savoury trees with pesto and a little grated Parmesan!
