...............an award winning dessert recipe!
This weekend is our town's fall festival which culminates with the S.P.I.C.E. Auction. (Special Partners in Children's Education) Part of this annual event is a dessert contest. Every year I say that I am going to enter and then I chicken out. This year I really do want to submit an entry. I just can't think of what to bake. The categories are cakes, pies and other. Obviously, the "other" category leaves the field wide open.
I love to cook and if I was entering a recipe contest for soup or chicken or casseroles, etc. I could think of dozens of things to submit. I have done my share of baking, but I don't seem to have a signature dessert. And, now I need one by Saturday afternoon! Here are the things I am considering right now. I have made each of these more than once so I am not pulling something new out to experiment.
Incredibly Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies - these moist, yummy treats have 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding baked right into them which give them a unique fluffiness and taste.
Pecan Cream Cheese Squares - these are very rich and so much easier than a pie.
Poppy Seed Bundt Cake - moist and tasty and even better with a light orange glaze on top.
German Chocolate Cake - a few years ago I found a recipe for frosting this cake that is the best I have ever tasted. It has real butter and real vanilla and sweetened condensed milk and is to die for if you are a GCC addict.
Anything there sound like blue ribbon material? Please vote and let me know. Thanks.
