Tasty Tuesday- Crescent Holiday Tree

I made this last year when we had a party and it was so easy and so good. I found it on Pillsbury.com.
I've also seen a version of this as an ornament.

But I thought I would share this since the holiday entertaining season has officially started!
When I made it I changed the veggies up a bit so you can really used whatever you would like.

Crescent Holiday Tree
