Taos Herb Co. crowns biscochito queen

Posted

The results are in and this year’s Taos Herb Co. biscochito contest winner is Sonya Silva-Baca. 

During an hour of tasting and judging inside the local herb store in the Albertsons shopping center Thursday (Dec. 5), biscochito cookies from across Taos were put to the test in the annual contest which brings out the best bakers in the area. 

“The ancianos just love it,” said longtime contest helper Elva Archuleta. “It's just a tradition we all have.” 

Judges volunteer to take the ultimate Taos taste test and are fed one of each of the entered cookies. This year, less than 20 entries went head to head compared to over 30 in the previous year’s contest. 

Second and third place went to Josephine Sandoval and Rochelle Wollard-Trujillo, respectively.
