Tear ‘n’ share Christmas tree #freefromChristmas

It’s 1st December so I think I’m officially allowed to say – It’s Christmas!!

We’ll be opening the advent calendars today, putting up the tree at the weekend and it’s time to seriously start thinking about all the festive food.

xmas treeThis year I have teamed up with some wonderful ‘free from’ bloggers to bring you a brilliant buffet, free from the top 14 allergens. We hope it gives you, and your friends and family, lots of ideas for how to cater safely and deliciously for everyone with allergies this Christmas.

Today, it’s my turn and I have brought you this festive tear ‘n’ share Christmas tree. It is so simple but effective and and such a great dish to liven up any Chistmas buffet table.

How to make a puff pastry Christmas treeI have just used a cinnamon and sugar filling which would be great drizzled with icing or served with an apple sauce dip.

But it is so easy to add your own favourite sweet or savoury filling such as:

  • Dairy free chocolate spread
  • Freefrom pesto
  • Marmite
  • Mincemeat
  • Jam
