Illinois finalists ask for your help in national peanut butter recipe contest          Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

My daughter, Julie (age 7), and I entered the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest this past fall. She is now one of the 10 online finalists. We live in Channahon, Ill., which is about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. We had a wonderful time together coming up with a recipe to submit.

We were ecstatic when we were notified that our "Texas Roll 'Em Up" sandwich would be put online for the public to vote for. We ask that your readers visit www.jif.com, check out the sandwiches, and we hope that our sandwich would be the one they vote for. The "Texas Roll 'Em Up" has a Southwest flavor; all recipes are online; we hope that you try one. We sincerely appreciate every vote the "Texas Roll 'Em Up" receives. Voting is from Jan. 12 to Feb.6, 2007.

I also would like to encourage parents with children age 6-12 to enter this contest next year.

Julie and I had a really terrific time in the kitchen creating a recipe. It has become a life experience memory that we will forever cherish. And the grand prize winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship fund.

I hope you vote for us this year, and next year I hope to vote for your child's sandwich.

Thank you.

Terry and Julie Dosher
