Has any one ever heard of an edible Advents calender ?Ha! here is a delicious cookie in the form of an edible  Advent calender. This is some thing very interesting for the kids to play around with different food colours and  I am sure the kids will have great fun doing an edible advent  calender.
This simple recipe is with brown sugar,(I didn't want to use white sugar)and is really tasty,but the colours are not exactly the same.  because of the brown sugar,So if you really want the same bright  colors you could try with white granulated sugar.

Divide the dough in to 7 portion.It depends on how many colors you want to make the use.If you want to add more colors then divide it  in to the required amount of portion.For the base take a big amount  and for the rest of the colors its up to you.I just made it in to small portions.
Spread a piece of foil paper,  and wear your gloves ,then one by one add the colors to the dough.
Wrap them up with cling film and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours until you clean up the place.The dough has to become hard.

With kids having holidays this is a great idea! All the colors and the design is lovely!
I think this would also be a great way to teach little kids the shapes and so...must make some cookie cutters for these shapes and try it out with my children. I think it's a great idea...the only problem would be trying to stop the kids from eating the whole cookie in one go! the recipe seems so delicious! good luck in the cookie contest :-) you have my vote :-)

This recipe is very tasty.I guess you can't stop the kids having them in one go. (unless you hide it)Each time I walked in to my pantry I ate a piece and by evening I had eaten numbe 1 to 15 almost half a tray in one day.Hmm yummy..Thanks for voting me...
This is a great idea! Much more filling than the usual advent calendar snacks!
