Lemon blueberry bread . is the perfect dessert for Christmas. It’s very moist, tasty and easy to make.

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter-melted
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 10–12 oz. chocolate chips or chocolate chopped in small pieces (I used half of semi-sweet and half of milk chocolate )

Instructions :

Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving the paper hanging over the sides so you can lift it out later.

Next, in a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla and salt until the sugar dissolves. Then gradually stir in the icing sugar.

Press the dough into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface with a spatula or simply press with the palms of your hands to obtain an even layer half a centimetre thick.

Place in the freezer until firm enough to cut.

When firm enough, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Cut out the Christmas trees with biscuit cutters and place them on the baking sheet. Put them in the freezer for 45-60 minutes, until hard.

Next, melt the chocolate and line another baking tray with parchment paper.

Using a fork, dip each tree into the melted chocolate to coat it completely. Tap lightly with a fork to drip off excess chocolate. (Because the peanut butter mixture softens very quickly at room temperature, I recommend taking only a few Christmas trees out of the freezer at a time, as the hard ones are easier to work with). Place the chocolate covered Christmas trees on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened.

Store in the fridge or freeze for longer storage.

I got 18 Christmas trees, but the number depends on the size of your biscuit cutter. Mine were about 1 ¾ x 2 ¼ inches. Don’t waste the dough, but take the scraps, knead them, press with the palms of your hands and trim off at least 2-3 more thorns.
