Gluten Free Pull-Apart Christmas Tree

This delightful bread will be the centrepiece of your next holiday gathering! A simple gluten free yeast dough is shaped into a Christmas tree, baked, and then brushed with butter a sprinkled with seasonings for a festive treat.

1 cup warm Water 105-110°F (237 mL)
4 tsp Active Dry Yeast (13 g)
1/4 cup Honey or Sugar
3 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (408 g)
1 Tbsp + 2 tsp Xanthan Gum (15 g)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 3/4 tsp Salt
4 Eggs or ¼ cup Gluten Free Egg Replacer (40g) (prepared according to package directions); if using whole eggs, watch the dough to see how much liquid you need to add in the end if any
1/4 cup Olive Oil (60 mL)
1/2-1 cup warm Water, as needed
1/3 cup Butter, melted
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning
Marinara Sauce, for dipping

Place warm water, yeast and honey or sugar in a small bowl; let sit for 5 minutes or until active and bubbly. While waiting, prep dough ingredients.
In a large bowl of a stand mixer, combine flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.
Next add the yeast mixture, eggs and oil to the flour mixture. Blend on medium using a dough hook. Add additional water as needed starting with a tablespoon at a time. Knead in your mixer for 5 minutes.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough and place each ball on the prepared baking sheet, forming a tree shape with each scoop. Lightly cover with plastic wrap or a light towel. Either leave in a warm draft free place in your kitchen or place in your oven with the light on. Allow to rise until doubled in size. This will take 1-2 hours, depending on how warm your area is. The oven method only takes about an hour. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 15-25 minutes or until lightly browned, but still soft.
Mix together melted butter, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Brush over the warm rolls and serve with your favourite pasta sauce.
