December is looming fast, and the beginning of December marks the opening of advent calendars for many, whether it's traditional advent calendars, chocolate calendars or something a little different, like reading a different book each day, doing a different family activity, or creating a new craft.
In the past I’ve made advent stockings out of baby socks and filled them with chocolates and treats, but mostly we have a shop bought chocolate calendar (and doors only get opened following good behaviour!). These biscuits are a simple cooking activity that can be done with the children, and the only difficult part is making sure that you only eat one a day, as they are very moreish. I like to add ginger, however they can be left plain or, by substituting 25g flour for 25g cocoa powder, can be made chocolate flavoured.
Whilst keeping the biscuits in an airtight container is best, they could also be threaded onto some string or ribbon and hung above the fireplace or on the Christmas tree (just remember to poke a hole in the biscuits with a straw before baking).
