How to make Pita Bread Christmas Tree appetizers for holiday entertaining.

I made these last Christmas for a street party.  The recipe is in the Pillsbury Holiday Appetizers and Mini Desserts magazine (#319) November 2007.  Although this magazine is no longer available in stores, apparently you can order back issues from the Pillsbury website.


These were very quick and easy to make.


  • pita pockets
  • thin pretzel sticks (halved)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 2 tbs chopped parsley
  • 1/4 tsp garlic/pepper blend
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper.

To make:

Grab the recipe for the full directions for making these, but as you can see, they are fairly self-explanatory and can be covered and refrigerated for up to 8 hours before serving, which is perfect if you are entertaining guests.

ok aussie mummy, where are you in California…I swear we were separated at birth (“a champagne sipping, chocolate eating, camera carrying, crafty, shopoholic mummy”) and while I’m a mommy, the similarities are uncanny!
