Crescent Roll Christmas Trees


  • crescent roll dough – we used the kind from a can but your own recipe works great!
  • baking pan
  • cream cheese frosting
  • red and green chocolate candies
  • spoon or plastic bag for drizzling


  1. Lay out your dough in triangles onto a baking pan. If using the crescent rolls from a can, they are already in the perfect triangle shape. I actually kind of like that they are a little wonky, just like a real tree. If you want them smaller, use a pizza cutter to slice them diagonally in half.
  2. Bake for 9-11 minutes at 375 degrees. NOTE: If you bake them for too long, they will over cook and be crispy. But my son loved those too, so maybe it’s not bad too over brown a little.
  3. Once baked and cool to the touch, drizzle your frosting onto your trees in a zig-zag pattern, representing a string of lights. To help get your frosting more drizzly, melt it in the microwave for 10 or so seconds.
  4. I just used a spoon to drizzle. You could also put your frosting in a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off.
  5. Add your colored chocolate candies to your tree. I like these mini m&ms, they are the perfect size for a tree treat!
