4 H Cookie and Bread Contest

Tuesday was the annual 4 H Cookie and Bread Contest.  I had 5 children participating.  They are allowed to enter up to 3 items as long as they are in different categories. but I limit my children to only two.  There are several different categories they can enter such as corn bread, specialty breads, muffins, yeast breads, bar cookies, drop cookies, and cut out cookies. We started baking on Monday afternoon to try and get a little ahead, but we still finished right at 5:00 on Tuesday and the entries had to be in by 5:30 (and we live 20 minutes away!)

Cloverbuds (ages 5-8) are allowed to use mixes (thank goodness!)

Lillian made Chocolate Chunk Cookies from a mix.

And blueberry muffins from a mix.

She won 1st place for her muffins and 2 nd place for her cookies.

Christian made sugar cookies from a mix.

And raspberry muffins from a mix.

He won 1st place for his cookies and second place for his muffins.

Alex and Anthony are juniors (ages 9-13.)

Anthony made honey butter dinner rolls and won 2nd place.

Alex made chocolate cheesecake brownies.  He got a participation ribbon.

Nick is a senior (ages 14-19.)

He made butterscotch caramel brownies and pretzels.  He won first place for both of them.

They all did a great job!
