Edible Cookie Advent Tree

Edible Cookie Advent Tree 

An Edible Cookie Advent Tree is the perfect way to count down the holiday fun. Just unwrapped cookie ornaments ripe for the picking, each day leading up to Christmas.

Last year I did a boozy bar top advent tree. I walked you through, the how to create a Bar Top Advent Tree, called the 12 Days of Jolly, using mini liquor bottles as ornaments to countdown the Twelves Days of Christmas. I still firmly stand behind that this as a super fun way for adults to celebrate the holidays. It also makes a charming hostess gift and caused quite a stir as our  white elephant gift last year, in fact I never seen so many adults fight over a gift before, LOL.  This year I commissioned a good friend and local baker Kelli Tucker with Cafe’ Noms, to create some one of kind hanging ornament cookies to be placed on a Christmas tree. We discussed several options for my mini trees such as 2 sets of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” theme, which would give me two gifting options through out the season.
We also discussed having a basic advent countdown calendar for the month of December, days 1-24, where each day you could partake in one cookie to celebrate the season. This would be a great treat for kiddos, and a controlled one cookie a day limit. If you have multiple children you may want to use a bigger tree and select a color for each ornament per child, so red ornaments are Suzy’s, green ornaments are Jack’s , and Yellow ornaments are Billy’s. We decided that it made sense to to wrap the cookies for freshness, plus it also makes them completely ready for gift giving as a hostess gift or for a holiday party gift exchange. This concept has so many ideas and options for the holidays and is a really fun way to celebrate the holidays. Heck, pair it with the Bar Top Advent Tree and you can have a Boozy Cookie Exchange. You can do pairing with shots and cookies for an after-hours company party. The possibilities are truly endless, it just takes a little imagination. I also think this could be a really cute idea as a table centerpiece for a holiday cookie exchange or company holiday party as well. I imagine this sweet little tree being used as a centerpiece for a ladies cookie exchange party by the hostess, and maybe the guests names written on each cookie as a fun souvenir to take home from the party.   I added a Gallery below so you could see all the attention to detail in these beautifully iced cookies; which really makes them quite a beautiful gift on their own. Kelli offers many different techniques such as lace inlay, plaid and even sugar glass. Not to mention the cookies taste amazing. To see more of Kelli’s amazing creations you can check out her Cafe Noms Facebook page or Instagram page and she will be happy to assist you with your custom holiday order.
