Categories: summer camp

Every year during Fire, Forge & Feast Camp, we gently “encourage” the kids to come up with their own idea to have a Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-Off. Just planting the seed. The thought. The idea. It’s amazing to Pam and I every summer how they come up with that plan “all on their own.” Ha.

Today was the day for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-Off. Just what we need…
to get the kids all sugared up!!!

We had seven entries (six kids & one from Pam) in the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-Off Contest. Some classic, some not. Some with special ingredients, and one even “deconstructed.” Everyone in class got a plate with all seven cookies on it. Everyone got to do some taste-testing, pick their favorite and place their votes. Each camper got one vote… and a glass of milk!!!

Congratulations to Jackie who won the contest…
and was the proud recipient of my handmade terra cotta Blue Ribbon “Trophy” Plate!
