  • 4 little slices of smoked salmon
  • 4 slices of Comté cheese
  • Dill
  • Optional: lemon and fresh cream

  • Ingredients for about 25 cookies (diameter 5 cm):
  • 125 g of sugar
  • 60 g of butter
  • 250 g of flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ of a baking powder box
  • Peel of 1/2 lemon
  • 50 g of chocolate
  • 25 little colored chocolate candies

Preparation of the « Christmas tree » sandwiches:

Make toasts with the bread slices.

Cut 3 stars of 3 different sizes using cutting mats. Do this twice. Repeat with the salmon and the Comté cheese.

Build up the « Christmas trees » by alternating bread, salmon and cheese, going from the biggest stars to the smallest.

Fix the tree with a toothpick and put a bit of dill on the top.

You can make a dip with fresh cream, dill and lemon to go along.

To not waste food, reuse surpluses:
- use the toasted bread for breadcrumbs
- make little toasts with the salmon or cut it thinly and add it to the creamy sauce
- grate or cut the cheese thinly to use for your pasta or rice dish

Preparation of the « reindeer » cookies:

Mix the egg and sugar.

Add in the baking powder, half the flour, melted butter and the lemon peel. Blend.

Knead the dough, adding the rest of the flour, into a smooth ball.

Let rest for one hour in the fridge.

Stretch the dough and cut the cookies with round cutting mats.

Cook on a baking sheet covered with baking paper for 15 to 20 minutes at 150°C.

Allow to cool.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave at low-power position. Using a toothpick to dip in the chocolate form the reindeer antlers.

Take a colored candie to be the nose, place it in the middle of each cookie: a drop of the melted chocolate will fix it in place.

Let set and it’s ready!

Now all you need is to place all these little bite-sized surprises in your bento boxes to share with your family, friends or colleagues! They will be amazed!
