  • Puff pastry: 1 sheet, thawed if frozen
  • Pesto sauce: 1/2 cup (store-bought or homemade)
  • Parmesan cheese: 1/2 cup, grated
  • Egg: 1, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Wooden skewers: About 8-10, depending on the size of your trees


Warm the oven up to 190°C (375°F). On a lightly floured surface, unfold one sheet of puff pastry and roll it out a bit.

Cover the dough with about 1/2 cup of pesto sauce, and then top it with 1/2 cup of chopped Parmesan cheese. Form the dough into thin, even pieces that are about an inch wide.

Fold each strip back and forth to make a tree form, with a wider base and a narrower top. This will make the small Christmas trees.

At the base, put a wooden stick in to keep the shape and serve as the tree trunk. Do this again for every strip.

To give the little trees a shiny look, brush them with an egg wash. Place the trees on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

The pastry should be baked in a hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until it turns golden brown and puffs up.

Before you serve, let the tiny trees cool down for a while. As a Christmas starter or snack, you can eat them warm or at room temperature.


To sum up, Pesto and Parmesan Mini Christmas Trees are a fun, tasty, and simple treat that will make your holiday parties more enjoyable. They are loved by guests of all ages because they look nice and taste good.

There will be a little bit of holiday magic in these little trees, whether you’re having a big party or a cozy family dinner. Try this recipe, and enjoy the happiness and cheer that these tasty treats bring to your celebrations.
