CHRISTMAS TREE PESTO BREADSTICKS



Christmas Tree Pesto Breadsticks image

This is a centerpiece fit for a celebratory gathering. We added extra pine nuts and reduced the olive oil a bit to make a chunky pesto that spreads easily but does not melt out in the oven. Any mozzarella bits sticking out of the "branches" become golden brown and crunchy.

Categories     appetizer

Time 45m

Yield 8 to 10 servings

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 cups firmly packed fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 small cloves garlic
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup shredded whole-milk mozzarella (about 4 ounces)
1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated pecorino cheese (about 1 ounce)
One 13.8-ounce tube refrigerated pizza dough

Steps:

  • Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line an upside-down baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Add the basil, pine nuts, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. With the motor running, drizzle in 1/4 cup of the olive oil until incorporated. The pesto should be slightly chunky, not smooth.
  • Combine the mozzarella, ricotta, pecorino, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Add the pesto to the cheese mixture and stir to combine.
  • Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-by-15-inch rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 1 large and 2 small triangles; one of the 12-inch sides will be the base of the large triangle with the 2 small triangles on either side. Combine the 15-inch sides of the 2 small triangles to create a large triangle on the prepared baking sheet, tugging and pressing down on the dough as needed to shape it. This will be the base of the tree.
  • Leaving a 1/4-inch border around the perimeter of the triangle, spread the pesto and cheese mixture evenly to cover the base. Cover it with the remaining large triangle, tugging the dough as needed to fit over the base. Seal the 1/4-inch border by firmly pressing the top edge down onto the bottom.
  • Leaving a 1-inch "trunk" down the middle of the tree intact, use a sharp knife to cut horizontal lines, about 1 1/2 inches apart, from the middle "trunk" to each edge, making "branches." Twist each "branch" to reveal the layers of cheese and pesto. The shorter ones will twist once or twice. The longer ones will twist three or four times.
  • Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Lightly brush with the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil. Serve warm.

CHRISTMAS TREE CHEESE BALL

Provided by Ree Drummond : Food Network

Categories     appetizer

Time 45m

Yield 8 to 10 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces sharp Cheddar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
2 to 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
3 scallions, sliced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup very finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
Buttery crackers, such as Ritz, for serving

Steps:

  • Add the cream cheese, Cheddar, cayenne, Worcestershire, scallions, lemon juice and some salt and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is almost smooth; you still want a few bits of cheese in there. Remove with a rubber spatula to a piece of plastic wrap and wrap up the cheese mixture. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Shape the cheese mixture with your hands into a Christmas tree/cone using the plastic wrap to keep it together. Mix the chopped parsley and dill together on a plate or work surface. Coat the shaped cheese in the chopped herbs.
  • Transfer the cheese tree to the center of a platter. Decorate with the pomegranate seeds as ornaments. Serve with buttery crackers.

Provided by geneviever

Categories     Bread     Quick Bread Recipes

Time 52m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 3

1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
4 tablespoons chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®), or more to taste, at room temperature
1 egg, lightly beaten

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out one puff pastry sheet into a large rectangle on a lightly floured surface and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Lightly score puff pastry into the shape of a Christmas tree (triangle) with a wide base. Spread chocolate-hazelnut spread over the triangle in a thin layer with the back of a spoon.
  • Roll out the second sheet of puff pastry to a large rectangle and place on top of the first one. Carefully trace the shape of the chocolate covered triangle underneath and cut out the Christmas tree shape and the trunk. Pull away excess pastry.
  • Lightly score 2 lines down the middle of the triangle to form a tree trunk that is narrower at the top and gets wider towards the base. Using the trunk as a guide, cut branches into the sides of the triangle.
  • Twist the branches away from you, trying to get in 2 turns on the lower branches. Continue moving up the tree, twisting away from you as you go.
  • Cut a small star out of the excess pastry; place on top of the tree. Brush the star and tree with beaten egg.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until puffy and golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Slide onto a serving plate, using a piece of parchment paper if needed.
