Bacon Puff Trees
- 1 sheet puff pastry
- 1 pkg Fischer's Bacon - preferably maple
- 5 bamboo skewers
- Dried parsley flakes
- Maple Syrup
- 1 egg
- Open bacon and roll out puff pastry.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Cut the pastry along the shorter edge slightly thinner than the width of your field bacon (about 11 strips).
- Take two strips of pastry and wet two ends to stick them together to form a very long strip.
- Layer bacon over this strip of puff pastry.
- Accordion fold your pastry bacon strip so that it starts wide and ends with a small fold over that creates the appearance of a pointed Christmas tree.
- Stick the skewer up through the widest fold to the point of the tree.
- Repeat steps 3-6 until you have 5 trees.
- Take the last strip of pastry and use a cookie cutter or a small knife to cut out stars. If you find yourself without enough pastry, slice a red apple into ¼” chips and cut stars from the apple slice.
- Bake the trees for 15 minutes or until fully puffed but pale.
- While your trees are baking, whisk up your egg.
- When your pastries are still lightly pale, take them out and use a basting brush to coat them in your egg wash, then sprinkle to your liking with parsley.
- Bake another 5 minutes or until a golden brown.
- Serve with a side of maple syrup!
