Mmmm…First Annual Blueberry Bake-Off Winners Named

June 14, 2009


It was a blueberry lover’s dream Saturday at the first annual Blueberry Jamboree Bake-Off  at the Barrineau Park Community Center.

Dozens of cooks entered their tasty pies, cobblers, cakes and other blueberry goodies in hopes of winning cash prizes in the contest sponsored by the Escambia County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee. There was one basic rule — the homemade dessert must have included blueberries as an ingredient.

After the tempting treats were judged and the winners were announced, the public had the opportunity to sample the entries.

The winners of the first annual Blueberry Jamboree Bake-Off were:

Pies and Cobblers
First place: Blueberry Crunch Cobbler from Thelma Hickey. Second place: Blueberry Dream Pie (pictured above) from Marti Penland Koemmerer. Third place: Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie from Melissa Collie.

First place: Groovy Blueberry Gooey Cake from Klyn Wilson. Second place: Blueberry Pineapple Crunch from Dorothy Cunningham. Third place: Just Blueberry Cheesecake from Cindy Criswell.

Other Desserts
First Place: Blueberry Delight from Cathy Vanderpol. Second place: Blueberry Muffin from, Laura Kerby. Third place: Blueberry Muffin from Nancy Fillingim.

    Did the Festival have a recipe book with all the blueberry desserts? If not, that would be a good item to sell next year.
