Divide the dough in half and roll out into rectangle shape on a floured surface. Cut out 2 triangles from each dough piece.

Spread the one triangle with Clover Butro, herbs, chilli flakes and parmesan. Place the other triangle over the top to cover, matching the corners. Cut into slits for the tree branches leaving the centre uncut to form the trunk. Pull the strips and twist. Brush with more Clover Butro and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Serve with sauce of choice.

Chefs Tip: You could form little dough balls and shape into a Christmas tree for your board.
