Preheat oven to 400°F.
Unfold 1 pastry sheet on lightly floured surface.
Using 3 star-shaped cookie cutters in graduated sizes, cut 4 stars of each size for a total of 12 stars. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.
Place the 24 stars on baking sheets.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
Remove them from the baking sheets and cool on a wire rack.
Top 1 large star pastry with about 1 teaspoon pudding. Top with 1 medium star pastry, turning the star so the points do not line up. Top with about 1 teaspoon pudding and place 1 small star pastry on top, turning it so the points do not line up. Repeat with the remaining star pastries, making 8 “trees”. Drizzle the“trees”with honey. Sprinkle with green sugar and top each with a raspberry.
