Ingredients you’ll need:
There are only 4 simple ingredients which you’ll need to make these scrumptious Biscoff Pastry Christmas Tress. Find the full written recipe and ingredients list in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Pastry : Make sure to use PUFF pastry, not shortcrust. Puff will make the trees ultra soft and flakey with a delicious crunch. Use store bought pre-made puff pastry sheets for efficiency and ease. You can use regular or gluten-free, but as the Biscoff contains gluten… if you want a gluten-free dessert, maybe switch the Biscoff for a vegan chocolate spread filling instead.
- Biscoff spread : Use smooth or crunchy Biscoff spread for this recipe. They are both absolutely divine!
- Ground ginger: This is optional but it adds a festive, cozy touch to the dessert and really makes the taste unreal! It gives freshly baked gingerbread cookie vibes!
- Dairy-free milk: You can use any dairy-free milk including almond, oat, soya or cashew. This is simple to brush over the pastries before baking to help the pastry brown and the sugar to stick.
- Sugar: Optional but it helps the pastry to turn golden and helps with the crispy texture. The best sugar to use is granulated or regular caster sugar.
- Icing sugar: This is completely optional but dust over the top of the trees before serving for a ‘snowy’ touch.

You only need a spare half an hour to make these fun, effective and festive little hand held treats, with a few delicious ingredients too! You can find the full written recipe and ingredients list in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Unravel the pastry
Start by unraveling the puff pastry sheets, you’ll need 2 sheets. Use a rolling pin to help flatten out any crinkles on the pastry. Spread a generous layer of Biscoff spread onto one of the puff pastry sheets, making sure to go right into the corners. Sprinkle over a light dusting of ground ginger. Add the second sheet on top, press down to stick.
Use a shark knife or pizza cutter for ease to make 1 inch wide strips of the dough.
Take one of the strips, lay it flat in your hand or on a clean worktop and roll it up accordion style, going winder to smaller at the top to replicate a christmas tree shape. Poke a cake pop stick down the middle of the tree. Chomp out star shapes out of the pastry and place on top of each trees.
Place the trees on a grease proof paper lined baking tray, spread out to give them room in the oven. Brush dairy-free milk over the pastry then sprinkle over some sugar, then bake until golden.
Serve with a dusting of icing sugar to replicate ‘snow’. Enjoy!!
