This year more than ever we are eager to do a countdown to anything! Especially if it is one step closer to breaking free of Covid! Counting down the days in December leading up to Christmas Eve is a tradition my family and many others enjoy. The tradition has catapulted into so many new styles and activities, from fun advent calendars that would make great gifts for kids, to ones that would delight wine and liquor lovers! Let us also not forget the classic chocolate advent calendar. Sharing a few of our favorites to escalate your families excitement for our favorite season!
I agree with you nothing will ever replace your beloved family holiday cookie recipes, but you’ll definitely want to make room for the new ones from Neil Edley’s ingenious advent calendar. Each of the 25 days before Christmas surprises you with a speciality ingredient, baking tool, or recipe, to create six different kinds of holiday cookies. In true advent calendar tradition, the cookies are a surprise—but we can let it slip that hot chocolate lovers, peppermint purists, shortbread snackers, and all holiday cookie connoisseurs will be ever-so-satisfied. Great for counting down to Christmas with the kids, or for anyone looking to own the annual cookie swap. Made in Pennsylvania.
