  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove dough from cans in rolled sections (2 sections from each can); 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.
  3. Bake one tree at 375 degrees F. for 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; carefully loosen with pancake turner and slide onto wire rack to cool. Bake and cool second tree.
  4. Place each tree on serving platter. In small bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, dill and garlic powder; blend until smooth. Spread mixture over both trees. Decorate trees with assorted vegetable pieces. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate until serving time. To serve, pull apart slices of tree.

Always a hit! Instead of 2 trees I sometimes make one large one. Bake top half on one cookie sheet and bottom half on another. Also good with herbed cream cheese. I do not use the dill.

A huge success at a get together! I made a single tree, so just halved the recipe. Also added more garlic and dried onions. Made the dip the night before so it could season. Delicious!

This was a big hit at a cookie exchange that I hosted. They now sell crescent rolls sliced into spirals as called for in the recipe. Great idea!
