Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Remove dough from cans in rolled sections; do not unroll. Cut each section into 8 slices (16 slices from each can).
  • 2
    Place slices, cut side down, on ungreased cookie sheets to form trees. To form each tree, start by placing 1 slice for top; arrange 2 slices just below, with sides touching. Continue arranging row of 3 slices, then row of 4 slices, ending with row of 5 slices. Use remaining slice for trunk. Refrigerate one tree while the other bakes.
  • 3
    Bake one tree 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; carefully loosen with pancake turner and slide onto cooling rack to cool. Bake and cool second tree.
  • 4
    Place each tree on serving platter. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, dill and garlic powder; blend until smooth. Spread mixture over both trees. Decorate trees with assorted vegetable pieces. Refrigerate until serving time. To serve, pull apart slices of tree.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If preferred, you can substitute 2 teaspoons ranch dressing mix for the dill and garlic powder called for in this tree-shaped crescent veggie appetizer.
  • tip 2
    To make your cream cheese Christmas tree appetizer as attractive as possible, be sure to use vegetables that are different colors.
  • tip 3
    We suggest not to use chopped tomatoes in this recipe—they're watery and the liquid might run into the cream cheese.
