Edible Christmas Tree - Ginger Cinnamon Buns

The actual recipe for the ginger cinnamon buns is below, but I think the "tree" can be made using ready made frozen biscuit dough, frozen cinnamon rolls dough, or pecan buns as a dessert.

I haven't tried their recipe, as I would make it with prepackaged frozen cinnamon or bread roll dough. The pic is more for the idea of making a tree. I would sprinkle bread dough w parsley for a green tree, and use the white glaze w the cinnamon buns for a white tree. I like the pecan cinnamon rolls the market used to carry. They're delish. You can get as creative as you like

I'd use the ready made ones too. With cranberries and white frosting for decorations.

Sounds yummy, pds. You have given me another idea -- cream cheese and cranberries. Thank you.

Cinnamon red hots or M&M's would probably look cute.

You're welcome, Kads. I bet the kids will have fun decorating the 'tree.' All the toppings here are making me hungry. Red and green candied cherries would be festive too.

I have a recipe for dinner rolls baked in a circle/ring, like a wreath. They're topped with cream cheese, herbs/spices, chopped broccoli and red/green peppers as an appy. You put a big bow on the bottom. I can't get my puter to copy the pic. I'll keep trying. Happy Holidays!
