County Fair Recipes!

By The Paula Deen Test Kitchen

Step right up, come and get it! Remember strolling along your county fair on a warm summer night pulling at your cotton candy, taking a huge bite out of your chili dog, or sharing your gooey and sweet funnel cake? The worst part of that whole scenario was that you had to leave all of those wonderful flavors at the fair until the next time that it rolled around.

Not any longer! Paula and the test kitchen have a whole slew of county fair recipes that will have you dreaming of ferris wheels and apple bobbing with every bite.

Fancy These Fair Recipes!

Funnel Cakes

Paula’s Pink Taffy
Crispy French Fries with Mayonnaise Dip
Midwestern Style Beer Brats

Love these recipes! I enjoy our county and State Fair so much that I started entering the Culinary Arts contests a few years ago. My first entry was a Honey Oatmeal Cookie (made with at least 51% honey)and I won 2nd place! My family and I were so surprised and had a great time at the fair. Thanks so much for all the great recipes. I gave my son your "My First Cookbook" for Christmas a couple of years ago when he was nine. He's all "boy" but loves to help out with mealtime.

Paula, To heck with the diet! Your recipies are alway the best. I told you a long time ago when you were here in Albuquerque, that your fried chicken is better than my Grandma's. It is still true. Bless you! Chris
