Students used this recipe to make Big Pine French Toast by cutting French Toast diagonally to build a tree, then sprinkling with powdered sugar and green decorator sugar crystals on top. Used a slice of orange for the sun and Bosc pear slices for the tree trunk, then use fresh parsley around the base. Looks beautiful!
