Christmas Cookie Advent (Countdown)
I usually undercook my cookies just a bit so that they are nice and soft. Not this time around. I cooked mine a minute over what the package said and let them sit on the pan until they were completely cool. After all, the last few cookies will be hanging for 3 weeks. So I wanted to get some of the moisture out of them. Stale cookies are better than moldy cookies.
Line up the cookies (front side down). Then carefully fold the sides over to the center, overlapping if necessary. I did 4 cookies at a time and worked my way to the top.
Tie a bow between every cookie with baker’s twine.

Cute idea! I could see my kids sneaking cookies tho. Visiting from Creativity Unleashed party.

I love all these ideas, but the cookie countdown is my favorite! Thank you for sharing at Celebrate It!
I don’t know about the kids, but I wouldn’t let anyone touch that. It works so well as decoration!

I love the tissue advent calendar – and the cookie idea is so pretty as it is – wouldn’t want to eat it!!! Adorbs!!
I love this! What a great idea! I have 6 kids and have given up on the idea of individual advent sweets, but love gingerbread men! I’m pinning this one. 🙂
Found you on Inspire Me Monday!
