DIY Advent Calendar

Countdown to Christmas with a cookie tree.

Forget the old store-bought chocolate standby and make this ginger biscuit advent calendar at home with your kids. Simply bake a batch of gingerbread cookies, use icing for the dates, and tie them to a small, flocked tree with ribbon. Not only is it yummy but it looks pretty too! "The brown of the ginger biscuits looks so good against the blue of the numbers," says Nicola.
