slices, then row of 4 slices, ending with row of 5
slices. Use remaining slice for trunk. Refrigerate one
tree.

Bake and cool second tree.

4. Place each tree on serving platter. In small
bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, dill and
garlic powder; blend until smooth. Spread mixture over
both trees. Decorate trees with assorted vegetable
pieces. Refrigerate until serving
time.
