This gorgeous peachy delicious Christmas tree pastry will disappear from the table in seconds. Make and impress all your family and friends!


  • Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
  • Bake at: 180°C (356F) for 20-25 minutes
  • Serves: 2


  • 1 Can (400g net) Wattie's Hawke's Bay Peaches (Sliced-No Added Sugar)
  • 2-3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • A Pinch Salt
  • 1/3 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 150 g (One sheet) Flaky Puff Pastry (Store Bought)
  • 1-2 tbsp Milk (your choice)


  • Start by pre-heating the oven at 180°C (356°F).
  • Grab a can of Wattie's Peaches and drain the liquid out. Transfer the peaches into a sauce pan. Then add sugar, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon powder to the same pan and cook everything on medium to high heat.
  • Use a masher to mash the peaches. After 10-15 minutes of cook time, add lemon juice and turn off the heat.
  • Use baking paper to line your sheet pan and place a sheet of flaky puff pastry (I'm using a store-bought pastry to save time) on the paper. Roll out the sheet with a rolling pin.
  • Use the excess pastry removed in the step above or a new sheet of pastry, to layer on top of the bottom triangle, gently push down slightly.
  • Then grab a sharp knife or pizza cutter and cut branches into both sides of the triangle.
  • Gently grab the branches and twist into one or two turns, one by one and twist all branches moving from the bottom ones to the top.
  • Use your choice of milk and brush the tree.
  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until slightly golden brown on the top. Sprinkle some icing sugar and cinnamon powder on top to make the tree Christmas-y!
