Merry Christmas cheese tree to wow your guests
Cheese platters are a crowd pleaser. Cheese platters are easy. Cheese platters are delicious. Cheese platters should never be boring!
I keep lots of cheese on hand during the holidays. It seems like someone is always stopping by or we need to bring something over to a friend’s house.
Turning Christmas Cheese into Christmas Trees is my favorite way to make it merry and bright.
A flat wooden tree, topped with rosemary and battery operated led lights are all you need. (I got the tree at Michael’s last year, but you could also make a tree pattern out of the rosemary sprigs on a flat tray to lay the cheese on.)
Once you deck the boughs, add the cheese of your choice. I decorated with Brie, triple cream and and manchego. Rocking around the Christmas Tree never tasted so good!
