For the pesto rosso

  • 150g sundried tomatoes
  • 25g pine nuts
  • 10g grated Parmesan or vegetarian equivalent
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 garlic clove, peeled
  • 250g ready rolled puff pastry
  • About twenty cocktail sticks


  • Step 1

    In the bowl of a blender, place all the ingredients for the pesto and blend to obtain a creamy consistency.

  • Step 2

    Spread the pesto in a thin layer on your puff pastry and cut strips of 1.5cm wide by 12cm long.

  • Step 3

    Gently fold the strips to create small Christmas tree shapes with 4cm base and 0.7 to 0.5cm on all sides until the top.

  • Step 4

    Insert a wet cocktail stick from the base to the top without letting it pierce.

  • Step 5

    Place parchment paper on the oven tray and place your small trees on the sides.

  • Step 6

    Select BAKE, set the temperature to 180°C and the time to 20 minutes. Press Start/Pause to start preheating the oven.

  • Step 7

    When the oven is preheated insert your oven tray and let the trees cook until the end.

  • Step 8

    Before serving, arrange your small Christmas trees in cut half-oranges or equivalent to present them as a small forest.
