Molly Jarman of Carrboro took home first place and $200 in the KC Masterpiece Memorable Meals Contest at the N.C. State Fair. Jarmen’s recipe, Barbeque Spice Cookies, also earned her the chance to win a $1,000 national grand prize. Pam Garcia of Raleigh took home $100 for Pam’s First-Time Ribs, and Denise Walker of Cary took home $50 for KC Masterpiece BBQ Chicken Pizza. Entries were judged on flavor, ease of creation and presentation.

The winning recipe follows:

Barbeque Spice Cookies
• 1 ½ cups butter (3 sticks)
• ½ cup KC Masterpiece Original BBQ Sauce
• 2 cups sugar
• 2 eggs
• 4 cups flour
• 4 teaspoons baking soda
• 1 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 cup tubinado or granulated sugar

Melt butter in a large bowl. Add BBQ sauce, sugar and eggs to melted butter and beat well. Sift together flour, baking soda and spices. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until flour is incorporated. Refrigerate several hours until the dough is firm. Make dough into small balls (3/4 inch diameter) and roll in tubinado or granulated sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until firm. Refrigerated dough can also be shaped into a 1-inch thick roll and sliced. Dip the slices in sugar before baking.
