Annual home economics cookie bake off


Kimberly Bell’s seventh period class competes in the annual home economics cookie bake off, Oct. 23. Each group of students selected a cookie recipe from Pinterest to use for the contest.

This year cookies included peanut butter oatmeal, Boston cream bites, brownie cookies, cinnamon roll, and snicker doodles.

The judges grade each cookie on taste, texture, appearance, moisture, and if they were cooked correctly. The results will be announced this upcoming Friday. Involved in the judges panel was Kori Friesen, Mick Fuller, Robert Hyatt, Superintendent  Jeremy Brown, Greg Stobbe and Nate Case.

The home economic class continues to bake and cook many different recipes. Learning skills from chopping to making jams, this class gives students the opportunity to experience “real life” situations and learn many skills they need to know when they are older.

Fun facts about cookies:

  • The Oreo cookie was the best selling cookie of the 20th century
  • December 4 is National Cookie Day
  • The Girl Scouts first began selling cookies in the 1920s
  • American cookie jars evolved from British biscuit jars
  • The word “cookie” comes from the Dutch word “Koekje”, meaning small cake
