It might be a little late for Christmas but New Year’s is right around the corner and this easy family recipe is the perfect sharing platter for gatherings small or big. So whether you love Lotus Biscoff or Puff Pastry or both – this is definitely a recipe you need to try!
We have nut allergies in this house so we can’t make the traditional Nutella Puff Pastry Christmas Tree that you might have saw flooding reels on instagram. So we came up with a nut spread alternative and let me tell you it’s way better than it’s original.
Lotus Biscoff spread is absolutely delicious and perfect for the holidays. The orginal cookie that adorns coffees has created a creamy, sweet and tasty spread. We love it on just about anything: toast, crumpets, bagels, crackers and more.
Lotus Biscoff Puff Pastry Christmas Tree
a nut free version
- 2 puff pastry sheets
- 1/4 cup Lotus Biscoff Spread
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 180 Degrees C.
Roll out one puff pastry sheet onto parchment paper and cut into a Christmas Tree Shape.
Spread a thin layer of Lotus Biscoff spread on top.
Roll out the other puff pastry sheet and flip the first puff pastry sheet with the Biscoff on top and cut out Christmas tree shape again. (so you have a xmas tree shape with biscoff in the middle).
Cut lines sideways, along both sides of the Christmas tree, start above the tree trunk to the top. Avoid touching about an inch in the middle as if the tree trunk ran all the way up.
Pull each strip that was cut up a little and twist twice and lie back down. Continue until all "branches" are twisted.
Beat your egg in a small dish, to brush the entire top with egg.
Place puff pastry Christmas tree that is still on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and put in the oven.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until perfectly golden brown. Watch closely oven times may vary.
Steps to make Lotus Biscoff Puff Pastry Christmas Tree:
You will love this version so much more than the Nutella version. We will have to think of other shapes to cut out because this is just too good to only have at Christmas time.
Also don’t waste the puff pastry that you cut off. We put Biscoff spread on each strip that was cut off and rolled them into Biscoff croissants. I love a no waste recipe. Better yet, you can make Biscoff croissants all year round too.
