In this festive, family-friendly musical, eight young cookie chefs from across the country battle it out for first prize at the Cookie Coliseum. As three celebrity judges eliminate the chefs one by one, tension mounts and rivalry begins to give way to charity, family, and forgiveness. Meanwhile, the chefs learn what really makes for a winning Christmas recipe.
