Bacon Puff Trees


  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 pkg Fischer's Bacon - preferably maple
  • 5 bamboo skewers
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Maple Syrup
  • 1 egg


  1. Open bacon and roll out puff pastry.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut the pastry along the shorter edge slightly thinner than the width of your field bacon (about 11 strips).
  3. Take two strips of pastry and wet two ends to stick them together to form a very long strip.
  4. Layer bacon over this strip of puff pastry.
  5. 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.
  6. Stick the skewer up through the widest fold to the point of the tree.
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 until you have 5 trees.
  8. 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.
  9. Bake the trees for 15 minutes or until fully puffed but pale.
  10. While your trees are baking, whisk up your egg.
  11. 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.
  12. Bake another 5 minutes or until a golden brown.
  13. Serve with a side of maple syrup!
