It's time to once again break out those chocolate chips, sprinkles and cookbooks — it's time for the Lake Sun Holiday Cookie Contest. We're looking for your best, most scrumptious Christmas treats. From traditional favorites like oatmeal raisin to colorful concoctions jazzed up with red and green icing, the cookie contest is a perfect way to show off your prowess in the kitchen.
How to submit:
Bake one dozen of your tastiest cookies and bring them to the Lake Sun Camdenton Office (918 N. Business Route 5, Camdenton) by noon on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Along with the cookies, bring a recipe with your name and contact information.
Entrants must live in the tri-county area and must enter cookies (cupcakes, fudge, candy, dessert bars, cake balls or cake-based cookies will not be accepted).
Entrants will be judged on the following criteria: flavor, texture and creativity in appearance.
Gift cards to lake area grocer of winner's choice (Gerbes, Paul's, Dierbergs or HyVee)
First place — $75
Second place — $50
Third place — $25
Winning cookies will be photographed and included in the Thursday, Dec. 19 edition of the Lake Sun with the printed recipe.
