Flaky Pesto Christmas Tree

I have baked few christmas themed bakes during my chirstmas holidays and i have few sitting in my draft, obviously i want to clear them and here comes one among those christmas special bakes is this flaky, pesto christmas tree. This christmas tree asks for two puff pastry and few tablespoons of pesto. Just with this two ingredients you can just bake this cute, dangerously addictive, buttery and flaky snacks or appetiziers for a get together. Trust me, kids will go crazy if they saw this ultimate christmas tree in front of them. Very easy to make, and definitely one of the quickest snacks to make yourself with some kids around. Yes ask your kids to join with you to help, am sure they will just enjoy thoroughly making this edible christmas tree.
