Sprucewood Bakery

Sprucewood Bakery

Sprucewood Bakery is a young, proudly Canadian company that grew out of their highly popular 25-year catering firm that was known as Sprucewood Event Planning and Catering.  Mark Pollard, the founder and instigator, is also known as the "big cheese"! 

Mark loves to create and serve a variety of small batch, high quality hors d'oeuvres selections to his corporate and private catering clients, and one of these unique savory snacks is the Cheddar Cheese Shortbread cookies! 

That's right: a savoury shortbread cookie, sugar free, and made with 4-year old Canadian cheddar cheese! They taste cheesy and homemade, with a little zing at the end! These cookies make happy palates, plain and simple.

For many years, their catering clients and their guests had wanted to know where they could purchase these fabulous treats, so for awhile, Mark was selling them out of his own back door at home! Demand exceeded all expectations, and even does to this day!
