Advent Cookies

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!

    You are amazing! Great Advent stuff.
    I’ve got too much on my plate this year to do big Advent crafting and cooking stuff. I decided to just focus on our Advent reading, and of course, our Advent prayers. Not doing so well with the Jesse tree. But, it will have to suffice.
    I am glad you are having a fruitful season. Those cookies look yummy!
