State Baking Contests
Three baking contests held at your local member Fairs, allow the first place winner of each to advance to the state contest. The 2017 contests are:
- Adult Baking: Cinnamon Swirl Bread recipe
- Junior Baking: Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies recipe
- Two Crusted Apple Pie using your own recipe
😸 Of particular note this year is that the top crust for the apple pie must not be a lattice top and that the pie dish measures 9 inches across at the top inside of the dish.
