C Is For Cookies (That’s Good Enough For Me): Award-Winning Recipes From the 2014 Iowa State Fair!

“C” is for cookie. That’s good enough for me. Maybe it was all those years of growing up watching “Sesame Street.” Perhaps it was all those seasons of strained self-denial and patience, selling Girl Scout cookies and not eating all the Samoas and Thin Mints (OMG. Thin Mints.). Or maybe it came from having parents who were great bakers as well as possessing that highly-developed sweet tooth.

Whatever the cause, we love cookies, and we love any opportunity we have to indulge our inner Cookie Monster. And the AllSpice cookie contests at this year’s Iowa State Fair gave us good reason to sample dozens of Iowa’s very best cookie recipes.

Now, you can enjoy these delicious cookies, too: we’ve published the award-winning cookie recipes in the AllSpice Recipe Database! Read on for the list of winners:
