Christmas Tree Puff Pastry with Nutella on pears

A very impressive dessert just in time for Christmas – a Christmas tree made of puff pastry with the addition of Nutella. The base of the Christmas tree is a stuffed pear wrapped in puff pastry, of course spread with Nutella. I recommend the recipe because it is not time consuming and it is quite easy to make. Christmas Trees prepared in this way look just extraordinary.


  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 5 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 egg – lightly beaten
  • 6 large pears
  • for pears filling: pieces of dark chocolate, raisins, jam
  • powdered sugar for decoration


  1. Peel the pears and cut each in half, scoop out the inner core,
  2. Spoon the filling (pieces of dark chocolate, raisins and jam) into the centers of each pear,
  3. Fold the pears halves again together, stick a few skewer sticks into each pears to avoid opening during baking. The sticks are also needed so that the puff pastry does not slip during baking,
  4. Spread Nutella on one sheet of pastry, place the second sheet of puff pastry on top,
  5. Cut out thin long strips from the puff pastry,
  6. Line the baking tray with parchment paper, set the oven to 200 degrees,
  7. Put the pears on a baking tray,
  8. Start wrapping the pear from the bottom, placing the end of the first strip under the pear. Gently wrap each pear with twisted puff pastry strips,
  9. Brush the Christmas trees with egg and bake for about 20 minutes,
  10. Decorate with powdered sugar.
