How to make a Christmas Tree Charcuterie Board

  1. On a rectangular board, start at the bottom with short bread sticks to make the trunk of the tree.
  2. Stuff peppadews with boursin cheese. Arrange the first bottom layer of the tree with the stuffed peppers.
  3. Next, lay down a row of sliced cucumber. In between the cucumbers and the peppadews, fold salami pieces in quarters and squeeze in between to make its own row.
  4. Fan out a layer of crackers above the cucumber slices.
  5. Form another row of cherry tomatoes above the crackers.
  6. Cut brie cheese into large chunks and stack above the cherry tomatoes to make a row.
  7. Slice salami and fan out above the brie cheese.
  8. Arrnage another cracker row above the salami slices.
  9. The top row add 3 more stuffed peppadews.
  10. At the very top, place a Walker shortbread “star” cookie for the tree topper!

One thing I love this time of year is grafting new people into our lives. When you think about it, feasting together is a spiritual thing. Introducing people to other individuals (neighbors to neighbors), is a way to share the holiday spirit and love.

We need not hoard our friendships, but embrace them and share with others!
