Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread

Meet the Cook: Scottish settlers first came to this area over 150 years ago. My mother herself was Scottish, and - as with most of my favorite recipes - she passed this on to me. I make a triple batch of it each year at Christmas, to enjoy and as gifts. When I entered Scottish Shortbread at our local fair, it won a red ribbon. As long as we have been married - and that's 54 years - my husband and I have lived on a farm. We are retired, and we have five grown children. -Rose Mabee, Selkirk, Manitoba

There's a bit of my state's history behind these brownies' name and shape. In 1990, when I entered them at our state fair, Kansas was celebrating the 100th birthday of a famous native son, Dwight Eisenhower. In fact, that occasion was the theme of the fair. So I renamed my brownies, in honor of the rank he'd achieved as a general and cut them out with a star cookie cutter. They ended up winning a blue ribbon! —Pam Buerki Rogers, Victoria, Kansas

Orange Chiffon Cake

Orange Chiffon Cake

Meet the Cook: When I was a girl, I daydreamed about being the best wife, mother and homemaker. But it wasn't until a few years ago that I started entering our county fair. Since then, Orange Chiffon Cake has been awarded several blue ribbons. I'm fortunate to have a thin husband - he can be my taste-tester and never get full! We've kept our country ways all 53 years of our marriage. We're the parents of three, and have eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. -Marjorie Ebert, Conewango Valley, New York

Frosted Cashew Cookies

Meet the Cook: It was my sister's sister-in-law who discovered this recipe. We enjoy the cookies at Christmas, but they're rich and elegant for a special coffee and can be tucked in a field lunch box besides. Three years ago, I entered them at our country fair. They won a blue ribbon and were named grand champion. I'm a homemaker, runner for parts on our grain farm and helper with cattle. My husband and I have two boys, a college freshman and a sixth grader. -Sheila Wyum, Rutland, North Dakota
