Hoping for a Purple Ribbon!

Tomorrow is oatmeal cookie baking day! The twins are in 4-H and their club is meeting tomorrow to make their entries for the county fair. The fair isn't actually until August- but everyone is going on vacation so we are making them early and going to freeze them. Its probably not the best way to prepare award winning cookies- but it their first time entering in the fair and everyone gets a ribbon- so I think we are safe.

So we are making a huge batch of plain old oatmeal cookie dough - and then we are going to have a bunch of mix-ins for the kids to pick and choose which to add to the plain dough. We are thinking of having:

chocolate chips
raisins
craisins
white chocolate chips
cinnamon
apple pie filling

Hopefully by mixing and matching these- we can come up with some super yummy cookies!

I was thinking the oatmeal, craisin and white chocolate chip cookie sounded good and I don't even like craisins. Or the oatmeal, cinnamon and apple pie filling sounds good too!

We'll see! If we have alot extra- don't be surprised if I stop by with a plate!

Yummy! I bet the apple pie filling would help keep them moist, since the fair isn't for a little while.

Well - the cookies are in the freezer. McKynna made oatmeal cookies with cinnamon and apple pie filling. And Kwynn made oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and chocolate chips. Both were pretty tasty! We will see what happens at the fair- but I think in all the experience was good for them!
