Best State Fair Foods

Who wants something deep fried?

It's state fair time! In Maryland, deep fried Berger Cookies are the go to. In Delaware, it is the Delaware Dog. In Pennsylvania, you have Bissingers Apple Dumplings as the preferred button buster. Taste of Home has done the honors of compiling the definitive state-by-state list of go-to state fair foods. You can see the list here.

Speaking of state fair glory, we learned one of our listeners, Patty Ruppert, used Erin's chocolate chip cookie recipe and won the first place blue ribbon at the Maryland State Fair! It's her second blue ribbon using the recipe. The cookies are known around here as "engagement cookies," as they have been known to bring on a proposal from young men who have been dragging their feet (yes, they are that good).
