Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Remove dough from can; do not unroll. Using serrated knife, cut dough roll into 11 rounds.
  • 2
    Using photo as a guide, arrange dough into shape of tree on cookie sheet, spacing slightly apart, and ending with one round for the base.
  • 3
    Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until golden brown and dough is baked through. Cool 5 minutes. Carefully loosen from cookie sheet with spatula, and slide onto serving platter.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, softened butter, and 2 teaspoons milk with spoon until smooth and fluffy. If frosting is too stiff to spread, add additional milk, 1/4 teaspoon at a time. Spread on top of rolls. Sprinkle nuts over top. Place 1 cherry half on center of each roll. Serve warm.

    For best results, make sure maraschino cherry halves are patted dry before and after cutting in half.
  • tip 2
    Add 1/8 teaspoon vanilla to frosting ingredients, if desired.
  • tip 3
    Kitchen scissors make it extra easy to cut cherries in half for this pull-apart cherry pistachio treat.
