Step 1

First, preheat the oven to 400F, line baking sheet with parchment paper and grease it with oil (I used olive oil).

Step 2

After, finely chop 5 artichoke hearts, 1 garlic clove and 1 jalapeno. Then add them into a mixing bowl.

Step 3

Into the same bowl add 10 oz. frozen spinach (thawed & drained very well, it makes about 1/2 cup, packed), 4 oz. cream cheese, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese, salt & pepper, to taste. Mix well with a spoon.

Step 4

Next, place puff pastry down onto a baking sheet lined with greased parchment paper. Cut dough into a big triangle (use other two triangle for the top).

Step 5

Then, using a spatula, evenly spread half of spinach dip mixture, using other two triangles – place them on top of the spinach dip, pinching the middle to combine two puff pastry sheets into one big triangle.

Step 6

Using pizza cutter, cut strips on the sides of the Christmas tree.

Step 7

Then twist them two times.  After, using a small bowl, whisk 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush egg wash over pastry.

Step 8

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden color.
