advent cookie calendars
I can’t believe it’s midway through the first week of December and I hadn’t as yet opened a door on this year’s Toronto Star Cookie Advent Calendar (let alone thought about doing any Christmas baking). Now a yearly tradition, every day between December 1st and 24th, the paper runs a holiday cookie recipe, accessible through their interactive Advent calendar, reminiscent of traditional Advent calendars.
Here are a couple of other festive cookie-recipe-a-day sites that will surely help to motivate any tardy bakers.
Every day until Christmas iVillage is revealing a cookie recipe perfect for holiday baking, cookie swaps and bedtime snacks. From kid-friendly chocolate crackles and classic gingerbread, to pink meringue sandwiches and pretty peppermint sticks, these delicious treats are perfect for celebrating.
Saveur magazine is celebrating seasonal sweets with 25 days of cookie recipes, each one perfect for giving as gifts, nibbling after dinner, or paired with a mug of tea on a wintry afternoon.
