To make the Christmas Tree Cheese Platter

Cut up the cheese blocks into small cubes.  Wash and dry the grape tomatoes.

Simply lay out the cheese and tomatoes into a triangle shape.  We even cut a star out of a slice of cheese we had in the fridge. If you are making this ahead of time, wrap it up with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.

  1. That cheese platter is just the cutest! I thought Amazon Prime saved me just with 2 days shipping, Prime Now is just downright miraculous! Love it!

  2. I’m so jealous that you can do Amazon Prime Now! That would save me SO many times, so I’m anxious for it to be in our area. I will remember it for vacations though!
