12 Days of Savings – Day 1: Edible Ornaments

I am so excited to kick of this Christmas blog series all about saving you money this holiday season. I believe in finding ways to live well while spending less and this time of year every penny counts! Today’s feature gives you a lot of bang for your buck. How about creating “Edible Ornaments.” They are a creative way to trim your tree, make great gifts with a personal touch and, of course, taste delicious.

In honor of the 12 Days of Savings theme, I baked a set of 12 Days of Christmas edible ornaments. Gingerbread men would also work well and look great on display. Another idea is to use cookie cutters shaped like holiday lights and then string the cookies together with a strand of licorice string. (No matter what shape you choose just remember to create a nice size hole in the dough before baking since it will spread in the oven.)

Stay tuned for a new penny pinching holiday blog entry each day until Christmas!
