Christmas Cookie Challenge Season 3 episode 8 preview: Ready for a makeover?


Do those Christmas cookies need a makeover? On this week’s Christmas Cookie Challenge, it looks like those holiday treats are getting ship shape.

Ready for another Christmas Cookie Challenge episode? While everyone loves indulging in that extra Christmas cookie, it can affect that waistline. While Santa might be merry and jolly, no one wants that New Years Resolution to start off on the wrong foot.

According to the Food Network, this week’s episode of Christmas Cookie Challenge, “Merry Christmas Makeover” synopsis states:

"Eddie Jackson wishes five festive cookie makers a very Merry “Fit-mas” because Ol’ St. Nick has put the entire North Pole on a strict fitness regimen. The competitors have to decorate cookies showing beloved characters from the North Pole getting fit, and judges Matt Adlard, Ree Drummond and Brandi Milloy decide which cookie makers shape up and which ones ship out. Then it’s time for a much bigger makeover as the bakers redesign and reconstruct Santa’s house using only cookies. They also have to infuse their sugary shacks with innovative ingredients like tahini, avocado, olive oil and almond butter. It’s a remodeling race to the finish with the $10,000 prize awaiting the most adept cookie architect."

Looking at the first challenge, the idea of Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves getting into shape could be a fun decoration. Wonder if Santa can do some burpees?

While the first challenge is a little whimsical, the second challenge is quite difficult. Creating Santa’s house out of just cookies seems like quite a challenge. It will be interesting to see how these designs use different cookies to make a holiday house.

Although the decorative aspect is fun, the innovative ingredients will definitely inspire the home bakers. While people might cookie with almond butter, tahini might be the most popular ingredient. That flavor could totally change how people think about Christmas cookies this year.
