Cookies made in Sherwood Park were brought to the Oscars?! Yup, that’s right. Confetti Sweets is an adorable little bakeshop located off the main road in Sherwood Park that specializes in cookies. These cookies taste like a homemade recipe but made 10x better!
Owned by Kathy Leskow, she started baking cookies from her home then proceeded to sell them at a local farmer’s market. After 5 years of baking them from her kitchen, she opened up Confetti Sweets last year. Her cookies were brought to the CCMA Awards in Edmonton in 2014 which gathered so much attention that she was asked to bring them to a pre-party for the Oscars earlier this year.

The cookies are packaged in a cute resealable bag after you pick out the ones that you want. Cookies are $1.50 each, $8 for half a dozen, or $15 for a dozen. My friend and I came on a weekday near closing time but thankfully none of the flavours were sold out. Service was quick and friendly. My friend and I were in and out of the place in less than 10 minutes. The interior was super cute and very pink as well!
Confetti Sweets sells 10 different flavours of cookie. I tried oatmeal M&M, chocolate chunk, peanut butter chocolate, oatmeal raisin, double chocolate and sugar. The cookies were huge, soft, and freshly made. I could tell with each bite that time and effort was put into baking into these cookies! None of them were overly sweet either. Their most popular, chocolate chunk, had Skor toffee bits baked into it along with chocolate. My personal favourite was peanut butter chocolate because I’m a huge pb fan. It took me three days to finish my bag of cookies and on the third day, they still tasted like they had been made that day.
Confetti Sweets is definitely worth the drive to Sherwood Park! I could understand why they were brought to the Oscars after my first bite.
