Fruit Christmas Tree centerpiece

Makes 20 servings

Ingredients

1 ripe pineapple
1 pear (slightly under ripe)
2 clementines, peeled and segments separated
3 kiwi, peeled and chopped into sixths
8 oz. strawberries, stems removed
6 oz. blackberries
1 ½ cups red grapes
1 ½ cups green grapes
1 bamboo skewer
toothpicks

Preparation

Slice top and bottom off pineapple, then cut a thin slice from the top. Press a star-shaped cookie cutter into the center of the thin slide and set star aside.
Slice a little of the sides of the pineapple at an angle to create a cone shape. Push the bamboo skewer through the center, then skewer the pear on top, leaving the top of the skewer uncovered for the star later.

Place pineapple onto a serving tray then insert toothpicks around pineapple and pear at a slight angle. Place various fruit pieces onto the toothpicks, filling in all the spaces so that you can’t see the pineapple underneath. Add the pineapple star to the top. Serve immediately, or you can cover carefully with plastic wrap and serve the next day.
