Welcome Welcome to the 66th annual Bridgewater Country Fair! Over the years we have seen our small local fair grow to one of the state’s major fairs. We have worked hard to provide visitors with fun entertainment and many happy memories. Thank you to the 2017 Fair Committee & Fair Operations for the endless hours you volunteer to make this fair run as smoothly as it does. Thank you to all the volunteers from Bridgewater, our neighboring towns and mutual aid departments that put in countless hours to help make this fair a great success. Finally, a special thank you to the Bridgewater Fire Department, Ambulance, Women’s Auxiliary, and their families, for their time and sacrifice throughout the year. The fair is the main fundraiser for the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department. The money raised helps us pay utility bills, upkeep our property, maintain trucks, purchase safety gear for our volunteers, radios for responders, etc. We thank you for your continued support. 2017 Fair Chairman, Don Shail

BRIDGEWATER BAKING CONTEST JUNIOR BAKING RECIPE 2017 Baking Powder Biscuits with Cheddar Cheese 1
teaspoons Baking Powder
cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. You can use a mixer to mix the dough. Cut shortening in flour, baking powder and salt with either a pastry blender or a mixer. The dough should look like fine crumbs or pebbles. Add the milk and shredded chedder cheese. Be careful adding the milk. Too much milk makes the dough sticky not enough makes the biscuits dry. The dough as mixing it should leave the sides of the mixing bowl and form a ball. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. To knead is to fold the dough over itself. Repeat 10 times. Knead the dough too much and biscuits will be tough and chewy. Roll dough out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough ½ inch thick. Use a 2 inch round biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden brown 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Make 1 dozen biscuits. Enter 6 biscuits on a paper plate wrapped in plastic wrap.
PRE-DECORATED COOKIE CONTEST Open to all ages

ASSOCIATION OF CONNECTICUT FAIRS 2017 ADULT BAKING CONTEST CINNAMON SWIRL BREAD INGREDIENTS DOUGH
3 cups King Arthur Unbleached AllPurpose Flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup potato flakes
1/4 cup raisins, chopped
1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
2 teaspoons King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons salt 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached AllPurpose Flour DIRECTIONS In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dough ingredients, mixing until the dough begins to come away from the sides of the bowl. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface; knead for 3 minutes, allow it to rest for 15 minutes, then continue kneading till smooth, an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours; it’ll be puffy, if not doubled in bulk. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface, and shape it into a long thin rectangle, about 16” x8”. To make the filling, combine the sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and flour. Brush the dough with some of the egg/water, and pat the filling onto the dough. Beginning with a short edge, roll the dough into a log. Pinch the side seam and ends closed (to keep the filling from bubbling out), and place the log in a lightly greased 9” x 5” loaf pan.
ASSOCIATION OF CONNECTICUT FAIRS 2017 ADULT BAKING CONTEST CONTINUED
Cover the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 1 hour at room temperature, or until it’s crowned about 1” over the rim of the pan. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients, cutting in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Brush the loaf with the remaining beaten egg, and add the streusel, using your fingers to gently apply it to the dough, being careful not to deflate the loaf. Bake the bread for about 45 minutes, tenting the loaf lightly with aluminum foil for the final 15 minutes or so if it appears to be browning too quickly. Remove the loaf from the oven, and after about 5 minutes, gently remove it from the pan. Some of the streusel will fall off. Submit on foil-covered cardboard no larger than one inch from loaf.
