Judging a cookie contest is delightfully difficult.
All that nibbling – first for taste, then for texture. Onto the next cookie, and the next, next, next, then back to the first to compare, and compare again. Hmm, I think this is my favourite. But wait… let me taste that one again.
This is our first ever cookie contest with Canadian food bloggers (and Food Bloggers of Canada) and let me tell you, it has been a slice. When you love molasses cookies as much as we do every entry was a winner. But there can be just one winner and two runners up so here is our short list….
The Top 5 entries that we nibbled our way through here at the office last week (in no particular order):
The bright flavour of orange zest and the beguiling flavour of cardamom helped get this cookie into the top five.
Rum soaked raisins paired with coffee and chocolate chips made this cookie irresistible.
A classic molasses crackle cookie with a double twist — made with coffee, chocolate and a good dose of crystalized ginger, and gluten free.
Technically not a gingersnap this soft molasses crinkle cookie has a creamy truffle surprise inside.
All those figs, Calvados and a touch of balsamic vinegar had us intrigued.
The Winner and two Runners Up will be announced later this week.
