Let’s Get Ready to CRUMBLE!
When LSWG throws down a cookie-baking challenge to staff–and then sweetens it with a $50 Downtown Frederick gift card first prize–our resident bakers can’t wait to start pre-heating their ovens.
Eleven batches of cookies vied for first place honors–which were shared by staff accountant Julissa Canas and LSWG principal Ted Gregory.*
Cookies were judged on appearance, aroma, texture, and flavor, using a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being INEDIBLE to 5 being SUBLIME.
When all was said and done, two first-place winners and two honorable mentions were announced and the cookies became available for general consumption.
- 1st Place: Julissa Canas and her Chewy Chocolate Crinkle cookies
- 1st Place: Ted and Helen Gregory with their Norwegian Krinkle Tops
- Honorable mentions were also awarded to Ted and Helen for their Coconut cookies and marketing manager Jeanne Hall for her No Bake Salted Caramel cookies
Julissa Canas earned first-place honors with her Chewy Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.
Ted and Helen Gregory took home first-place honors AND honorable mention for their Norwegian Krinkle Tops and Coconut cookies.
*Full disclosure: Ted’s wife Helen did all the baking and deserves the honors, but we’re pretty sure Ted and his sweet tooth are Helen’s inspiration.
