There were exactly 125 recipes for cookies entered in this week's Algona Upper Des Moines-Algona Merchants Recipe Contest! That's more than we've ever had in any single week and enough recipes to compile a cook book composed only of ways to make cookies. The judges have not yet recovered from their cookie daze, and while we are in this state of confusion we might just as well confess that We used a pretty sneaky method of coming up with the winners. We picked ten best recipes out of the 125 good ones, put them in a box, and with closed eyes selected two winners! Never before have we resorted to such tactics and lots of good cooks are justified in complaining. But, we ask you, how would you go about judging such a contest? Bancroft-Algona Winners The winners were Mrs Frank Froehle of Bancroft for her Pumpkin Cookies and Mrs Stanley Muckey, Algona for her Orange Slice Cookies. The other recipes in the box for Mexican Wedding Cakes from Mrs Albert Mitchell, Fenton; Almond Bars from Mrs S. W. Nelson, Algona; Princess Gems from Mrs Frank Sterling, Algona; Chop Suey Cookies from Mrs Roy Chrischii- les, Fenton; Lace Cookies, Mrs W. A. Hammond, Wesley; Date 'Fil-% led Butterscotch Cookies, Mrs, D. W. French, Iowa City; Braunes Lebkuchen from Mrs R. H. Borchardt of Fenton; and Prue Cookies from Mrs Jim Butler, Whittemore.
