There were so many cookies! And all of them had something special to offer. Chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, colored sugar, powdered sugar, jelly/jam/preserves, rice krispies, coconut, candies...you name it, it was there. After having a bite of every cookie (there were about 20 different ones), the sugar coma hits and you think that you never want to see another cookie ever again! But that only lasts for a couple hours usually.
For Best Tasting, the winner was raspberry linzer ornaments...ornament shaped cookies with raspberry jam and powdered sugar. Very yummy! The winner for Most Unusal was the date jingle balls...little ball-shaped cookies filled with dates and nuts. Surprisingly yummy and light. The Prettiest cookie were the almond cream cups...cookie dough shaped like a mini tart filled with creamy almond whipped cream and topped with sliced almonds. Very delicate.
The winner this year for Best of Show though was Connie with these amazing gingerbread cookies that looked like fireplaces! Complete with the icing stockings and the hard candy fire and the pretzel logs and everything! They totally deserved the top prize they received. Congrats to Connie!!
