125 Cookie Recipes Swamp Judges Simmer Finals To Ten, Then Draw In Hat There were exactly 125 recipes for cookies entered in this weoVs Alpona Upper DOS Moinos-Aleo- na Merchants Recipe Contest! That's more than we've over had in any single week and enough recipes to compile a cock hook < omposed only of ways to make cookies. The judges have not yet rocov- cred 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 n box. ;md 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" Bancrofl-Algona Winners The winners were Mrs Frank Froehle of Bancroft for her Pumpkin Cookies and Mrs Stanley Muckey.

There is ten dollars waiting for prize money in next week's con- lost with the category of Ways To Use Thanksgiving Leftovers. It isn't possible, the judges think, that there will be as many entries as the Cookie Contest, but it should be interesting. Do you make your leftover-turkey into Chow Mein or do you have a special touch with Chicken Hash?.. Or maybe it's the. leftover vegetables or cranberry-sauce that you have a special way of fixing. Any- wey, we'll be glad to get your' ideas on the subject.
