Top Ten Cookies To Be Announced Tomorrow!

12/04/13 12:16 PM


We have sent out all the notifications for the “Official Cookie of Belle Grove Plantation”.

Brett and I would like to thank everyone that enter for sending us some really wonderful cookies!

It really was a very difficult decision to find the top ten!

We even had some help from Mr. Madison (John Douglas Hall, Historic Performer from Montpelier) yesterday.

He was here to visit his birthplace and while here, he gave them a final review.

We will announce the top ten tomorrow morning.

You will be able to find the recipes for the top ten tomorrow on our blog.

Here is the exciting part!

We have decided to make a change to the final judging for the number one spot!

When we announce the top ten cookies tomorrow, we will also open a special album on our Belle Grove Plantation Facebook Fan Page. It will list all the top ten cookies.

The judging will be left to you!

Review the cookies and select which one you think should be number one!

The one with the most “likes” will be the winner!

Remember the theme – “A Cookie James Madison would Love”

The judging will start on Saturday, April 13th at 12:00am and

continue until Sunday, April 21st at 11:59pm (Eastern).

We encourage you to share the fun with your family and friends!

To vote:

1. You must “like” our Belle Grove Facebook Fan Page

2. You will need to go to the cookie album and select your favorite
by “Liking” it.

Remember voting will start tomorrow so you won’t see the cookies until then!

We would like to wish each of you good luck!


Brett, Michelle and Hurley
