Christmas Tree with Nutella®
Baking around the Christmas tree
Turn an ordinary yet delicious cake into a festive Christmas memory! What is more festive than the sight of a Christmas tree decorated with Nutella? A little magic to your holiday table!
Preheat your oven to 180 ° C. Peel and cut apples into small cubes. Keep the apples in a bowl with the lemon juice.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, then add the apples.
Add sugar and cinnamon and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool for 10 minutes. Crush the apples with a spoon, to obtain the consistency of a compote.
Spread the applesauce on the first roll of puff pastry, leaving a 1 cm edge for soldering.
Cover with the second puff pastry. Using a knife, cut the dough into a fir tree. Then cut strips of dough on both sides to get the branches. Carefully wrap each slat in order to twist them.
Gently wrap each slat to twist. Using a pastry brush, brush the whole tree with the beaten egg. Bake the Christmas tree for 25 minutes.
Using a piping bag, add 15g of Nutella® to each branch.
