I saw this idea in a German cooking magazine awhile back and planned to create my own version this year. It's way past the time to gift or create an advent calendar. Sigh. However, the cookies themselves are so delicious, you can still make them for the holidays using holiday shapes or letters for the cutouts. You can also bookmark these for next year's holiday cookie baking.
These hibiscus flowers in syrup have been an obsession of mine since I had 2 jars shipped to be in Germany when I first spotted the product online years ago. Since then, I routinely add them to prosecco for holidays, sit back and watch the wow factor from my guests.
Since I've moved to the states I've been lucky enough to have met the rep for The Wild Hibiscus Flower Company. They have been generous enough to send me an assortment of their cool, creative products made with exotic ingredients. Aside from the hibiscus flowers in syrup, there are gorgeous teas, extracts and salt to choose from.
