Alice Darwin, a Brookfield resident of nearly 55 years, won Cantata Adult Life Service's 1st Annual Great Holiday Cookie Bake Off with her award-winning recipe, Peanut Butter Blossoms at a fundraising event on the Cantata campus on Dec. 15, 2018.

Cookie recipes were scouted from all over Cantata's campus and community and the top 13 were chosen to complete the classic baker's dozen. Bakers in Cantata's hospitality kitchen recreated each recipe for the event, where guests were able to purchase tickets to vote on which cookies they liked the best. 

All proceeds from the event benefitted Cantata's Best Life Foundation, which looks for new and innovative ways to improve the lives of older adults in and around the Brookfield area. 

Darwin is an active and involved resident in Cantata's Wye Valley Independent Living Building. Her Peanut Butter Blossom cookies have been made in the Darwin home since her own children (now grown adults with kids of their own) were little.

She said she initially got the recipe from a Brookfield-published cookbook, but the cookies were very easy to make and her children liked them, so she kept making them each year after.
