Shortbread Showdown sees repeat winner

Margaret Bereard is now a two-time winner of The Arts Station’s Shortbread Showdown.

The annual competition took place on December 21 and saw Elk Valley bakers showing off their skills and pitting their favourite shortbread recipes against one another. Community members came out to taste the cookies entered and voted by putting money into the jar beside what they thought was the tastiest cookie.

Margaret Bereard took first place for the second time with Gramma’s Cookies. Brynn Thompson came in second with her Shortbread Puffs and Freshies Coffee Company’s Mocha Shortbread took third.

The cookie competition wrapped up another successful What the Dickens holiday festival. The Arts Station fundraised over $600 from the festival’s many Christmas themed events, including the Shortbread Showdown. The money raised will go towards the Youth Public Art Project.
