The Pomerene for the Arts Center will be having their fourth annual Holiday Cookie Contest on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. Deadline to enter cookies for the contest is Friday, Nov. 30. Pictured here is a scene from the 2011 Holiday Cookie Contest.

COSHOCTON – Calling all Coshocton County bakers! The Pomerene for the Arts Center is hosting their fourth annual Holiday Cookie Contest on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. The deadline to enter your cookies in the contest is Friday, Nov. 30 and all cookies must be delivered to the Pomerene Center by noon on Dec. 7. Six dozen cookies must be provided for each entry.

The cookies will be judged in four categories: a Beauty Contest Cookie for all decorated holiday cookies (only 4 dozen cookies are needed for each entry in this category), Bars, Balls, and Nuts, Heirloom Cookie for those special cookies that have a unique story, and Spirit Cookies, which is any alcohol-cookie recipe. There will also be a Santa’s Choice Award (People’s Choice Award), which will be judged by the public. All other categories will be judged by David Smith from the Cheez-Kake Bakery.

The event features much more than cookies. Come and browse through the gingerbread houses, which will be made by children grades kindergarten through eighth grade. The gingerbread class for kids will be Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. There are still openings available. Cost for the class is $20. Three adult gingerbread houses will also be for sale during the event. Trains will be displayed around the gingerbread village and will be provided by Miles Williamson, an avid train collector. Music will be provided by Evan Abood.

“It’s just a really fun Christmas fundraiser for us and displays local bakers in Coshocton,” said Kristi Timmons of the Pomerene Center, “This is just a little fun event with laughs, music, and cookie eating, and its’ a good fundraiser for our program.”

Prizes will be awarded and are sponsored by Dean’s Jewelry, Tripplet’s Shawnee Springs Winery, and many more.

Entry forms are available at www.pomerenearts.org. You can also pre-order boxes of cookies on their website as well.

Space is limited. Call and make reservations to participate and help judge the holiday cookie entries. Cost is a $10 donation.
