Cher’rie Yoss, the culinary arts teacher at Harlingen High School South, has a knack for baking, and she is using her culinary abilities for a good cause.
Yoss is one of six finalists in the Nestle Toll House Tales competition in the Semi-Sweet Division. The contest asks bakers from across the country to submit their best cookie recipe. There are a total of six divisions participants could compete in.
Yoss plans on donating the prizes to the Culinary Arts program at HHSS if she wins. The individual with top recipe in each division will receive a $1000 gift card to www.cooking.com and a year supply of chocolate chips.
The number of votes received on Facebook determines the winner of the competition, and users can submit votes daily. The voting will end on Oct. 18.
