BHG’s State Cookie Contest

Do you have a state cookie? To promote their new line of bakeware, Better Homes and Gardens asked bloggers to participate in their BHG Live Better State Cookie Contest by posting a photo of a cookie representing their state. Our mission is to help them pick a winner by voting.

Now don’t worry.  I’m not asking for your vote because I don’t have dog in this hunt, but I did think this promotion was kind of fun.  Plus, it’s educational.  For instance, did you know that the state soft drink of Nebraska is Kool Aid?  I actually did know that, but when I first found out I thought it was quite amusing.

And I love the Texas cookie because rah, rah, rah! I’m from Texas.  Go Texas!  Texas forever! Also, what a nice job she did with the Texas shape. I’m not sure I would have thought to put colored frosting on pecan bars.

And finally, I like the Alaska cookie because it looks so delicious.  Plus “Super Wife” was really into it.  She made more than one entry, talked about it on her blog and posted her recipe.  Plus I always root for the underdog, and she’s running right behind Washington state’s cake mix cookie shaped like a raindrop. Go vote! This is a high stakes game.

    How fun is that! I don’t know if Minnesota has a state cookie, but our state bird is the mosquito! I like the Texas shaped cookie. How come you don’t have a “dog in the hunt”? You would probably win!

    I looked through all the entries and only saw a few I’d consider eating. It will make it easy to vote.

    We don’t have a lot of these types of things in Canada it seems, and definitely not “Official Provincial Cookies”. I think if we did practically everything would have beer and/or maple syrup in it :).
