November 16th, 2012 · No Comments

Pumpkin spice cookies.

Cookie bakers – get busy! Pull out those award winning cookie recipes and bake up your best for the Christmas in Yesteryear Village Cookie Contest at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

I’m one of the judges and am looking forward to sampling all the delicious cookies coming in.

The contest rules

Rules are simple: For each entry, contestants are to bake 1 dozen cookies and package them in a disposable container (sorry: no containers will be returned). Tape the recipe to the top and include your name, address, phone and email on the recipe.

Bring or deliver your cookies to the sign-in desk at the Yesteryear Village at the Fairgrounds, Dec. 7, between 5:30-7 p.m. The cookies will be judged and winners announced at 8:30 p.m.


Let the kids help bake cookies – you’ll both enjoy it.

You have several chances to win – and can enter as many cookies in any category as you choose (but each one must have a separate entry form and recipe attached with name, address and phone). Prizes of cookbooks, South Florida Fair tickets, aprons and more will be awarded to winners in these categories:

  • Most Creative
  • Best Tasting
  • Most Festive
  • Biggest Cookie
  • Best from Yesteryear Period- 1895-1945
  • Best Made by a South Florida Fair Volunteer

Here is inspiration from my own site – cookie recipes, decorating ideas (great cutters from coppergifts.com) and more. Jan’s Cookie post, no. 1.

I’ve written numerous times about homebaked cookies and how to get them right. Here are cookie baking tips – gleaned from many years of judging cookie contests. Heed them and you’ll have success!

Good luck, bakers – please bring me some really tasty and unique cookies!
