I've wanted to try this easy Christmas Tree Embellishment for an Apple Pie for a while now. I simply cut the tree out with a cookie cutter and baked the pie as usual. As soon as it's out of the oven the outline of the tree was sprinkled with green sugar (there's a chance it can burn if sprinkled on before baking, my oven temp is 400 degrees). And once completely cool I filled the opening with Sixlets and chocolate decorator candies to resemble ornaments.
The kids got a kick out of it!
And yes, there may have been a comment or two that this is how loaded my tree is with ornaments too:@)
My boys are grown and on their own and while the day job puts food on the table, it doesn't feed the soul. So this Philly Girl started Pig In Mud. Please join me as I welcome each season and holiday through brief posts focusing on home cooking, baking and crafts. I hope you'll find this a happy place that provides inspiration:@) Lynn
