Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Eddie Jackson, CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHALLENGE is a one-hour series that features five cookie makers in each episode, as they bake for two elimination rounds to prove their holiday skills to a rotating panel of judges. Two bakers are eliminated after the first round, and the remaining three contestants compete for the $10,000 prize. Lead judge Ree Drummond and guest judges Dan Langan and Aarti Sequeira appear in the series premiere, and these guest judges join Ree in subsequent episodes: Kimberly Bailey, James Briscione, Damiano Carrara, Jamika Pessoa, Jordan Pilarski, and Joy Wilson. Food Network first aired CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHALLENGE as a one-hour special on Saturday, November 28, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, with host Jonathan Bennett and judges Duff Goldman, Damaris Phillips, and Sherry Yard. A second special, CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHALLENGE 2, debuted on Monday, November 28, 2016 at 8pm on Food Network, with host Alison Sweeney and judges Damiano Carrara, Sharone Hakman and Jordin Sparks.
On Monday, December 18, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered "Crafty Christmas," the season finale of CHRISTMAS COOKIE CHALLENGE. Eddie challenges five of America's cleverest cookie makers to create their own custom Santa cookie shapes without the use of cookie cutters! Judges James Briscione, Ree Drummond and Joy "The Baker" Wilson step in to decide who succeeds and who just makes "Bad Santas." In the display round, the three remaining bakers have to get even more crafty by creating a Christmas wreath using only cookies. When the flour settles, only one baker's wreath will earn $10,000 of holiday green.
