Morgan McGlaughlin – www.insidefullerton.com @Insidefullerton
Gloria Vega – Super BOO-Yah-olic!! @Zooey02
And the finalists are:
Grace Nguyen – Chocolate Chip Cookie
Grace has a very unique twist to these American Favorites. The cookie has semi-sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, shredded sweetened coconut and then crushed ruffled potato chips. These things are addicting. It gives that great combination on a salty, sweet cookie that has a soft, yet crunchy texture. They are hearty cookies and mess with your taste buds in a good way.
Renee Fontes – Occupy Oatmeal Cookie
The classic oatmeal cookie is loved by the 99%. This old fashion favorite is occupied with golden raisins, apricots and a hint of cinnamon. There are plenty of flakes with the fruit but no nuts are allowed.
Ashley Birdzell – Texas Kicker – Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie
Ashley says ‘How amazing is it when 2 of the best things in the world collide!?!?!!? Cheesecake and Cookies!!!!! My Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie is sure to knock you into next spring. It’s a little nod to my Texas Heritage, Everything is bigger and more decadent in Texas!’
Jamie Karutz – Molasses Cookies
Jamie says ‘One of my favorite cookies is a Molasses Cookie. Every time I make them, I think of my girlfriends who are spread across the country. Whenever we get together, these are made and snacked on (it’s a must. These cookies have traveled thousands of miles). Whenever someone needs a cookie to make, these are the cookies suggested. You can’t eat just one.’
Alyssa Towson – Spicy Chocolate Cookies
These cookies are a nice chewy, chocolatey cookie with a kick! They are chocolate cookies with chocolate chips, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne. Just the right amount of kick at the end without being overwhelming. I think they would definitely pair nicely with a plain vanilla ice cream for a nice contrast of hot to cool.
