Step 3/7

Beat with the dough hook of a hand mixer to a smooth dough and roll out about 3 mm (approximately 1/4-inch) thick on a lightly floured surface.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut out the dough with tree-shaped cutters (about 6.5 cm) (approximately 2 1/2 inches) and place cut dough on the sheets. Bake in batches on middle rack of preheated oven at 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 2-3) (approximately 350°F/convection 325°F) until set, about 10 minutes.

Step 5/7

Allow the trees to cool on parchment paper on a large wire rack. Fill a small pot about 2/3 with water and bring to a boil. Reduce to the lowest heat so that the water only boils slightly.

Meanwhile, chop the couverture or white chocolate. Put half of it in a small metal bowl and melt over the pot of simmering water  over low heat. Add the remaining chocolate and melt, stirring.
