“This delicious cream cheese-based appetizer is a great addition to any holiday party and is always a hit with guests due to its festive look! I have typically made this recipe for parties with the light or reduced fat options instead of regular and everyone has said it tastes great and looks even better. After the tree has reached desired firmness, set it on your serving platter and top the tree with lemon peel cut into the shape of a star. Serve with your choice of crackers. Triscuits® or Wheat Thins® work great!” - by Laura

- Mix cream cheese, Havarti cheese, Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons basil, lemon zest, and garlic together in a bowl. Transfer cream cheese mixture to a piece of plastic wrap. Roll the plastic wrap around cream cheese mixture forming a cone shape, resembling a tree.
- Stand the 'tree' upright and remove the plastic wrap. Cover the visible portion of the 'tree' with 1/4 cup basil and parsley.
- Gently wrap the 'tree' with a fresh sheet of plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

"This recipe is a great starting point for those who want to get creative. Loved the garlic and the lemon zest, they added a great little bite. We found it a little lacking on the cheese flavor so we a..." See moredded 1/2 cup smokey sharp cheddar cheese and also tossed in about 1/8 cup bacon bits. Overall this was a good recipe and I will be making this again!"
