From WOOD COUNTY DISTRICT PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Wood County District Public Library invites home cooks and baking enthusiasts to bring their best recipes to the library for a community Holiday Cookie Bake-Off.
“With the popularity of television shows such as the Great British Baking Show, we thought it would be fun to offer our local bakers an opportunity to get in on the action,” said Michele Raine, WCDPL Assistant Director. “Winners get bragging right, a prize package, and their recipe is featured in ‘Cooks Corner’ in the Sentinel-Tribune.” The event takes place in the library’s atrium on Monday, Dec. 18 at 7 pm. Previous winning bakers are Char Rehklau and Isabella Nardone.
“The winning recipe is determined by popular vote that night, so we need both tasters and bakers,” said Raine.
To participate, bring at least two dozen cookies to the library. “The last couple of years, some of the bakers have run out of cookies, so we feel like having at least 2 dozen is pretty important,” said Raine. Bakers can bring more than one recipe, but should have 2 dozen of each cookie for the tasters. After all the cookies have been tasted and the votes counted, Mrs. Claus will award the prize to the winning cookie.
The event also features live music from students in Vicki Hoehner’s piano studio.
