Cute Christmas Foods: Christmas Tree Veggie Bread

These are from my cookie swap last December (believe it or not, I’m writing this post in January 2013.  How’s that for planning?) I have to warn you now, though, that while you may be used to my typical crappy iphone photos, these were taken on someone’s flip phone.  That’s right, a flip phone.  Apparently those aren’t all in museums yet, because my kids’ “Auntie Elaine” has one.  It takes EVEN CRAPPIER pictures! Holla!

Anyway, you’ll still get the idea 🙂

Christmas Tree Veggie Bread
Pop open two cans of your favorite refrigerator crescent dough, but don’t unroll them.  Cut each with a seraded knife into 8 equal pieces.  Arrange the slices on a greased baking sheet into a triangle with one piece at the bottom for your “trunk”.  Bake according to package directions.  Meanwhile, mix one softened block of cream cheese with one cup of mayonnaise and one packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix.  After the crescents have cooled, cover them with the ranch mix, and then decorate with the veggies of your choice, using finely chopped broccoli as your base.  (This comes out cuter if you don’t let your 4 year old help, but what’s the fun in that?)
