We haven't even carved the turkey yet, but if you're like us, you're already thinking about all the cookies and fudge and brownies and gingerbread houses to make this holiday season. Whether you're a baker all year long or someone who saves their talents for the season, we've got just the thing you need to brush up on your butter-sugar-flour game before preheating the oven.

Food Network will go live Friday, December 8th with a multi-platform holiday Cookie Party, offering themed content across Facebook, Food Network Kitchen, Food Network Finds, as well as Food Network's Snapchat Discover channel and leading into Saturday’s holiday-themed episode of the Emmy-nominated series, The Kitchen. This cookie extravaganza invites fans to join the celebration, bring along any questions they may have and will showcase Food Network's expertise across all things cookie and holiday alike.

"Our Cookie Party cook-along shows the full capacity of what we can do with our digital, linear and convergent platforms, offering content wherever our Food Network audience is," said Kathleen Finch, Chief Programming, Content, and Brand Officer of Scripps Networks Interactive. "Holidays and cookies go hand-in-hand, and this is a great way to celebrate the season while also entertaining fans."

Food Network will go live on Facebook starting at 10:30am ET with Food Network Kitchen: Office Hours offering advice on all things holiday cookies. Food Network Kitchen chefs and staff will recreate some of the most popular cookie recipes fans have grown to love, all while answering fan questions in real time.

Later in the afternoon, Food Network Finds, the popular social franchise, will offer audiences an afternoon cookie-snack when they bring viewers live into a famous New York City bakery.

#InspiredBy, the social convergent series that highlights aspirational food exploration, will feature an exciting, over-the-top cookie created by Food Network Kitchen's Sarah Balke; and continue to inspire fans alongside Food Network's newest holiday series, Christmas Cookie Challenge, Monday nights at 10pm ET.

Food Network's Snapchat Discover channel live story will be celebrating all things gingerbread, as well as looking to break the Guinness Book of World Records set for tallest gingerbread cookie tower.

Sit back, relax, and watch some soothing frosting magic happen as Decorating 101 introduces various ways to flood and decorate cookies.

The entire day-long event will offer a unique opportunity for audiences to interact with experts and virtually sample recipes, as well as take away helpful tips on how to make their own holiday celebrations a little sweeter. 

Mark your calendar for Friday, Dec. 8, and join the conversation with #CookiePartyLive.
