Jalia Creighton

Body
JALIA CREIGHTON, a Mt. Pleasant 4-H Club member, proudly shows off the Purple ribbon she won with her entry at this year’s Kansas State Fair. Creighton’s entry, “Grandpa’s Vanishing Cookies,” comes from the undeniable fact that, whenever there is a plate of these cookies around her grandpa, they “vanish.” The cookies are made from a basic cookie recipe of oatmeal and raisin. She tweaked them by adding chocolate chips and walnuts. Jalia stated, “I felt like they needed a little… something. I recommend trying these with a cup of coffee.” The virtual judge’s comments she received on the cookies were as follows: These look tasty; I can see why Grandpa would enjoy them! Uniform in size, light golden color overall, good texture, good portion size. Wish I could taste them!
