It’s not Christmas without a tree or sweet treats, so here’s a recipe that has both. This crescent roll Christmas tree looks stunning, but it’s actually super easy to make. Simply roll sweetened cream cheese and chocolate chips inside pieces of Pillsbury™ crescent dough, and then shape the whole thing into a pull apart Christmas tree to bake. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar for the finishing touch, and watch this Christmas tree dessert disappear as guests come back for "one more piece" again and again.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 6 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Separate dough into 16 triangles. Use pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut each triangle in half lengthwise to get 32 triangles.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix cream cheese and powdered sugar with spoon until well blended. Spoon a generous teaspoon of the cheese mixture on shortest side of each triangle; add a rounded 1/2 teaspoon chocolate chips.
  • 3
    Roll up each crescent, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to opposite point. Using photo as a guide, place crescents next to each other in tree-shaped pattern on cookie sheet, starting with top and working way to bottom trunk.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar, if desired.

  • Line your pan with parchment paper to catch any filling that may spill out of crescents while baking.
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut crescent dough.
  • Use a fine-mesh sieve to sprinkle crescent tree with additional powdered sugar.
