1st-ever Family Cookie Challenge


On Saturday we decided to let Madison and Hailey each cook a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. They stood side my side on their stools in the kitchen and prepared their cookies.  Travis and I helped them measure, pour, stir, and mix their creations.  On the last step (you know where you add the chips), they got to choose what kind of candy or chips they wanted to put in their cookies. While they were baking, we called some “judges” to come over and judge their cookies. 

The cookies were judged on looks, smell, candy and taste. 


We didn’t dare let the judges know who’s cookie was who’s…we would not stand for any favoritism.

Now for the intense sampling and voting



We even allowed the contestants to vote



After votes were tallied, Hailey’s m&m cookies were declared the winner…..oh, but wait!  We found Gunner’s missing ballet!


And what would you know….his votes tied it up!  So, the 1st ever cookie challenge was a tie!  Madison’s mini-milk-chocolate-chips-with-a-sprinkling-of-white-chocolate-chip cookies tied with Hailey’s cookies loaded with m&m’s and a few white chocolate chips!
