The Best Old Fashioned Dessert Contest
And the winner is...
  Previous Contests
• Cinnamon Rolls
• Brownies
• Cake Recipes
• Homemade Candy
• Christmas Cookies
 From Other Guides
• Contests
• Freebies

I want to thank everyone for entering their recipes in the contest. I tried them all, and each one could have easily been the winner.  Thank you for sharing your recipes with us.  Thanks also to the voters.  As you can't have contests without contestants, you certainly can't have them without voters either.  I really appreciate your participation, too.

Drum roll please... With over 60 percent of the votes, the winner of the contest is Roseanne's recipe for Lemon Sponge.  Congratulations Roseanne!  Be looking for that tremendously cool About t-shirt in the mail.
