I have been sitting on this recipe for WEEKS! And I’m so happy it’s finally December so I can share it. Such a fun recipe to make – especially if you have kids! But also fun for us adults 😉 This is such a quick holiday appetizer – it takes about 15 minutes of prep and 20 minutes in the oven. You can serve it right off the baking sheet or transfer it to a serving platter for a fancier presentation. Either way, this is a total crowd pleaser!

How to make a Vegan Pull-Apart Christmas Tree

Grab a couple cans of crescent rolls (yes, most brands are vegan-friendly) and pop them open. Break apart the triangles and then cut them in half. You’ll have 32 pieces total.

Add about 1 teaspoon (or less) of vegan cream cheese to the wider end of each triangle. Roll it up and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You can follow the photo to get the exact amount of rolls per row. And they just need to be sticking slightly – no need to push them together too much. They’ll continue to puff up in the oven.

Just be sure not to overfill the triangles – otherwise you might run out of cream cheese.

Pop the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes.

How to serve Vegan Pull-Apart Christmas Tree

Once the tree is golden brown (and totally cute), pull it out of the oven and brush it with vegan butter. This will give it a beautiful glow.

Then sprinkle some chopped parsley over top to get that “christmas tree” green. You can also add a pinch of flakey sea salt if you’re feeling fancy. And that’s it! Eat it plain or add a side of marinara for dipping.

I can’t get over how easy, festive and fun this recipe is! Bring it to your next holiday party!

Notes

*Some of the triangles will be bigger than others. Just use enough cream cheese to fit the triangle. Be sure not to overfill or you might run out of cream cheese.
**No need to squeeze them together too much. As long as they are touching they will bake together in the oven.
***TO TRANSFER TO PLATTER: If you want to transfer this to a serving platter, pick up the whole thing (including the parchment paper) and place it on the serving platter. Use a spatula to carefully slide the tree off of the parchment and onto the platter.
