Ree and Eddie are getting Santa's workshop ready to welcome some of the country's best cookie makers as they put their decorating and display skills to the test for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize!

Eddie has nailed his technique to get a closer look at the final cookie creations.

The cameras are at work, too, capturing all the creative confections the bakers make.

While the bakers work, Eddie and Ree are watching all the action from the sidelines.

Eddie stops by the bakers’ stations to see which ingredients they’ve chosen.

It’s not always hard work on set! In between challenges Eddie and Ree have some fun of their own by playing holiday themed games.

They also make delicious confectionary creations of their own!

Ree gets into the holiday spirit with the help from a cowboy snowman.

During a challenge in which the bakers create self-portraits, Eddie gets playful with his own reflection.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a cozy sweater!
