Tag Archives: Holiday Cookie Contest



Ladies, gentlemen and kids of all ages–fire up those ovens and bring your holiday cookies to Gloucester City Hall on Saturday, December 11th at 1:00pm for the second annual Good Morning Gloucester Holiday Cookie Contest to benefit The Open Door Food Pantry.

Entry fee is $5.00 and two non-perishable food items for The Open Door.

And here are the rules:

You may enter more than one type of cookie but you must donate $5.00 and two non-perishable food items per entry.

Your entries will be judged on the following criteria by qualified food professionals and local notables, all with excellent taste buds:

Taste 40%

Appearance (of cookies and overall presentation) 20%

Texture 20%

Overall Appeal of cookies 20%

And now, the particulars:

You may decorate and garnish your entries with holiday flair as desired, 12 cookies per plate please–presentation is important!

No professional bakers/chefs or culinary arts students allowed to enter please.

No mixes allowed.  All entries must be from scratch.

Three legible copies of recipe must accompany all entries. Please include name, address and telephone number on the BACK of each sheet.  Recipes may be reproduced.  If your recipe is not original (your personal creation), please attribute its origin.

Judging will begin promptly at 1:30 and will conclude when all entries have been judged.  Announcement of the winners will follow the conclusion of judging.

You do not have to be present for announcement of the winners, but it will be more fun if you are.

The decisions of the judges are final.

All cookie entries will be packaged and donated to The Open Door the night of the event.

I am assembling prizes now so if you have something foodie/local/fun you would like to donate to the prize baskets, please let me know.    There will be adult first, second and third prizes and prizes for the kids too!

If you have any additional questions please feel free to email me at laurielufkin@yahoo.com and I will help you.
