    Sherrie-pie's Note:

    I've hung onto this recipe for years, knowing that I would need it one day. And this Christmas I will be using it. I thought I'd post it so as not to lose it. It's a puff pastry case in the shape of a pine tree, stuffed with a mixture of rice, boursin cheese and mushrooms. Decorate the tree with pastry scraps, cut out into the shape of baubles and stars. It looks festive enough to be a crowd pleaser, veggie or not.

    4. 4
      Cut pastry in half and roll each half to a 36 x 25.5 cm rectangle. (That's 14 x 10 inches) Fold these in half lengthways and cut the long edge of each into a Christmas tree shape.

      Unfold and place tree on a baking sheet. Brush with egg, spoon filling into centre, and cover with second tree.
