Cookie Cook-Off Coming to county

Published 3:04 pm Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Calling all cooks! It’s time for the 5th Annual Heritage Cook-Off, sponsored by the Butler County Farmers Federation Women’s Leadership Committee. And the delicious theme for this year is cookies. The event is set for 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16 at the fellowship hall of Walnut Christ of Christ. All cooks, male and female, 18 years of age or older are invited to enter this cook-off, with all federation members also encouraged to enter, says Charlene Powell of the BCFFWLC.

“Definitely, the more, the merrier,” Powell said. “This is the fifth year of our cook-off and we are hoping this will be the best year yet. A panel of judges will have the difficult task of naming the top three cookies.”

The cookies are to be baked at home and brought to the cook-off ready to be judged.

The top three winners will receive monetary prizes and the first place winner will gon on to the State Cook-Off to be held in September at the ALFA Office in Montgomery.

Entries will be judged on flavor, attractiveness, simplicity of recipe, appearance and, of course, taste.

“Following our blind judging, the participants and those attending will have the tasty opportunity to sample the cookies,” said Powell. “So dig up your favorite cookie recipes and enter!”

Membership in the Federation is $30 a year and brings many money-saving benefits with it, Powell says.
