Our cookies seem to have taken on a life of their own within our celebration of Advent. We are constantly on the search for cutters or plans for cutting out cookies to “coordinate” with either the Jesse Tree symbols, the Saint for the day or both. Here are some pics of our Advent Cookies:
The Fall of Man... the "apple"
this is why it is important to buy better ingredients. Grocery store food coloring just doesn't cut it! This was "red"... which made for bright pink apples.
a little red sugar fixed the pink apples for the most part
bah! i turned this... i guess i need to use graphic converter for these. sorry 'bout that. MilkyWhite with her St Bibiana ornament
another unturned image... the apple cookies with the apple Jesse Tree ornament (front)
back of the Jesse Tree ornament
our tree... i don't have time to fix all these sideways pics now... maybe later
our Advent picture books
Noah's Ark mini cookie cutters (for "Noah" Jesse Ornament)
The Ark and the animals
Angels for Jacob's Ladder (Messengers were seen ascending and descending)
symbol of father and son for Abraham and Isaac (yes, Isaac was older, but his represents them to us anyway)
Star for God's promise to Abraham
There is more, but I’m out of time!
