Browse the produce aisle and you'll find that there's a bunch of jewel-toned fruits and vegetables fit for decorating a Christmas tree. I like to use multicolored bell peppers and pomegranate seeds, but you can use whatever you're inspired by. Star fruit, of course, is the natural choice for a tree-topper.

Ingredients

Directions

Using a stand mixer or a bowl and a spatula, mix together the cream cheese, herbs, garlic, mustard, and salt until combined. Form the mixture into a ball, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Before serving, form the ball into a tree shape -- like an egg shape, but pointier on top. Roll the tree-shaped ball in the parsley, reshaping it with your hands as necessary. Decorate with bits of bell peppers and pomegranate seeds. Top with the slice of star fruit.

Serve with crackers and crudites.
