Do you make great cookies? The Bulletin wants to know.
The At Home section is hosting a cookie contest to determine the best cookies in Central Oregon.
The grand prize winner will receive a two-night stay at the Oregon Coast. Other winners will receive $25 in Downtown Dollars, which can be used at businesses in downtown Bend.
The winners will be determined by a panel of judges on Nov. 15.
Those interested in entering the competition must register by noon, Nov. 12.
Cookies will be divided into several categories:
• Chocolate chip
• Traditional (This category will include cookies such as snickerdoodle, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin and other cookies that people are familiar with.)
• Nontraditional/wacky (This category is for cookies with unusual ingredients or preparations.)
• Youth (for bakers age 16 and younger.)
