The season of Christmas is always a fun time since there are numerous opportunities. I mean, we have eaten more cheeseballs in the last few months than I would care for in a lifetime. Knowing me, it was time to get my thinking cap on and create something new.
We start with a noodle crust which means they are incredibly simple and easy, and only require about 30 minutes from beginning to end.
You will being by with mixing up the spinach ingredients. Be certain to thaw the egg and scatter it into handfuls in order to get all of the moisture out of it. Use a mixer to blend it together with the garlic, cream cheese, seasonings, and the cheeses.
Personally, I used the “thin” design pizza crust.
In today’s post: Find out how to change ordinary dough into a scrumptious Spinach Christmas tree Breadstick!
My favorite aspect of Christmas is the amazing food. The Christmas period is just amazing simply because there are so many different ways for snacks that you normally would not enjoy all season long.
This is really a cute holiday starter thought! Breadsticks stuffed with dip in the shape of a Christmas tree.
You’ll need to begin by mixing the spinach dip components. Make sure you get the egg ready and have it thawed and squeeze it into hand-fuls to get the majority of the rust out. Work with a mixer to blend it together with the garlic, cream cheese, seasonings, and cheese.
I utilized the “thin” design pizza crust. This is really a adorable holiday fighter thought! Breadsticks packed using spinach dip with the form of a Christmas tree.
This will give you 1 large triangle piece and 2 small pieces. Move the triangles into a bit of parchment paper, putting the side borders to make another triangle. Because it moves tends to stretch a bit out — no biggie yank on it in the form you desire, pressing on the 2 halves together from the center. This is the base of the breadsticks you will be creating.
Spread the egg over this base.
You will then need to tug a little at the dough in order to be certain that it covers the entire triangle.
Working using a cookie cutter, cut bits starting at the middle to the border edge about an inch farther down the triangle. Don’t cut all the way, but leave about 1-inch still intact.
Take each “bit” and flip it to make a tree silhouette, as shown below. For you may only give it a twist or “curl”, but as you move down the tree you will need to give them 2 or 3 twists and curls.
Set your oven to 400′ degrees for around 22-minutes to make sure that the backside is completely done and cooked through. It should not be doughy. For your first time, steer on the safe side and be sure to double-check to make sure the backside of the tree is fully cooked all the way through, even if you see that the bottom side looks nice and brown.
Once the breadsticks are finally out of the oven, you are then able to simply brush the Christmas Tree Breadsticks with warm melted butter and garlic salt.
Well done and congrats! You are now finished and able to enjoy a beautiful Christmas treat. Happy Holidays!

Include in the cheddar and parmesan cheese. Beat the cheese to combine them.
In the oven, bake your Christmas tree for about 20-22 minutes. You will want it to be golden brown on the top and completely cooked on the bottom side. Then melt the butter and include the seasoning and garlic salt. Brush the butter over the Christmas Tree breadsticks.
