Flufforeo: Fluff Centennial

Last year I discovered that Marshmallow Fluff is from Somerville, a city right outside of Boston, and that every year Somerville has a Fluff Festival. I also found out that this festival has a baking contest, so of course I have to enter.  If you didn’t see my entry from last year, I made these.

This year I was not sure about entering because I had a conflict with the timing of the festival, but I found out this year was the centennial celebration of Fluff and I didn’t want to miss out on this milestone!  I was also really struggling with recipe ideas.  I tried two different recipes multiple times, never quite getting either one right. I was quickly becoming frustrated, and running out of time.

Suddenly I came up with a great idea – recreate an Oreo.  I loved this idea.  I got super excited about it and got right to work. After a couple test runs I had the perfect recipe.

I am so incredibly happy with how this recipe turned out. The Oreos are amazing, and I really had my hopes up for a chance at winning this baking contest. I went out of my way to adjust multiple schedules to make sure I could enter this contest, and I was so happy with this decision because I felt so confident that these cookies would win.

I won’t drag it out – I did not win the contest, but these Oreos are addictingly good. I’m not as disappointed as I thought I would be, and I think it’s because of how amazing these cookies are. These might be my new go-to birthday gifts for everyone I know.  (Also, have we talked about how many birthdays are in September?! It’s crazy, right??)

I’ve already brainstormed ideas for next year’s contest and I can’t wait to give it another go!
