A valiant effort, but alas, my Monster Montana Cookies fell short in the Better Homes & Gardens “State Cookie Contest.” Congratulations to Louise Bishop, whose Washington State Chocolate Filled Raindrops garnered the most votes!
And considering the population of each of the states, it’s still satisfying to see WA win the title, instead of CA, NY, TX, FL, etc. THANK YOU to everyone who voted for my cookies, and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to arrange a “tasting session” yet – I’m still working on it, promise!
One final note: if there had been a “Plating” category, I have no doubt that Montana would have won, thanks to the visual demonstration that the Monster Montana Cookies are indeed “bigger than a bison!”
And thanks to BHG for inviting me to participate and represent Montana, and for the snazzy cookie sheet!
