- 1 roll puff pastry
- 1/4 cup cream cheese mousse**
- 12 thin slices salami (or cold cut of choice)
- 10 green olives

**if you can't find cream cheese mousse then use softened cream cheese (make sure it's spreadable).
Roll out Puff Pastry (or defrost completely if frozen) lightly roll to smooth out. Spread with cream cheese mousse and top with salami slices, then slice into 9 or 10 strips lengthwise.
Fold the strips of dough accordion style, start with a small amount and widen as you go (until you reach the end).
Place a long skewer in the center starting at the base then through to the top of the tree. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. While strips are in the fridge pre-heat oven to 350°.
Remove from fridge and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden. If desired top each tree with a green olive and stick into a hard square of cheese or serve as is. Enjoy!
