At Granbury Solutions, we take our baked goods very seriously. This year at our Grapevine office we held the first annual Golden Spoon Cookie Contest and the results were…delicious. With 11 yummy entries, our judges had a hard time picking just one winner.

After very careful consideration and tasting, then some more tasting, the judges deliberated and chose a caramel spice cookie as the winning confection. With everything from peanut butter to red velvet crinkle cookies, the judges definitely had their work cut out for them.
