Cookie contest just the beginning
November 25, 2021
The Moorcroft Senior Center and West Texas Museum sponsored their first benefit collaboration Friday afternoon with a cookie contest. Judges Monte Reichenberg, Jake Miller, Cheryl Schneider and Matt Wood chose from ten varieties submitted.
Nancy Feehan took first place and $25 cash with her Whoopie Cookies; Glenda Roberson's Cherry Coconut Bars received a solid second and $15; best presentation also went to Glenda Roberson and her prize was a longhorn mug; and the sponsors' choice award and a jumbo bag of candy went to Josie, Tony and Markie Manning for their Chocolate Chip Cranberry Monster Cookies.
The proceeds from this event will be donated to the Angel Tree Project.
Senior center manager Mary Metzler and museum curator Cindy Mosteller plan to continue these benefit contests every month, except December, according to Mosteller, with different beneficiaries and dishes. The women hope to increase community involvement through these events, sharing tastes and recipes to make the mouth water.
The next contest will be held at the senior center on January 14 at 1 p.m. and it will be an Any Bread Contest. The beneficiary of that contest will be announced later.
