Cutout cookies
COOKIE BAKERS. From left: Chelsea McIntire, Yvonne Ackerman and Robin Palmer, all of whom plan to participate in the new cutout cookie category at the Carroll County Fair, recently got together to share ideas, but not their favorite cookie recipe.

The Carroll County Agricultural Society (Fairboard) is attempting to generate new interest in the horticulture hall judging held during the county fair.

Last year, the fairboard added the quick breads category and had several entries of breads and muffins.

The fairboard received several requests to add a cutout iced cookie category in the baked goods competition and is doing so this year.

Fairboard Secretary Tammy Sanderson said as an added incentive, she selected a special prize that will go the winner of the category.

Judging for the baked goods category is open to county residents only and includes cakes, decorated cakes, cookies, yeast breads, quick breads, candy and pies. Judging is held July 16.

 She has also secured additional prizes for Best of Show in each baked goods division.  Prizes include cake and bread pans, oven mitts, and more.

“We want to build those categories back up,” Sanderson explained. “We know we have a lot of talented bakers in the county and would like them to share their talents and show off their work.” 

Red Star Yeast also  donated packets of their Platinum Yeast to be given to participants in the baked goods categories.  

All persons wishing to exhibit at the Carroll County Fair must have a membership or exhibitor ticket.  All baked goods entries must be homemade by the exhibitor and in plastic type wrap or in a suitable container.

 Baked goods entries must be delivered to the exhibit hall July 15 between 1 - 6:30 p.m. 

A complete listing of rules and categories can be found in the 2013 fair book.
