advent cookie calendar
I don’t do a tonne of holiday baking but always enjoy drooling over the recipes. Last year I discovered The Toronto Star’s annual Advent cookie calendar, and I am happy to see its return this year. Every day between December 1st and 24th, the paper will run a holiday cookie recipe, accessible through their interactive Advent calendar. I never did bake any of the recipes from last year’s calendar, although they all looked delightful and fairly easy to make. There was just something about clicking on the window each day that hearkened back the Advent calendars of my youth. Minus the chocolate treat behind the door of course. These treats you have to make yourself.
