Tonight is the premiere of Hallmark Channel‘s latest Countdown to Christmas movie, Christmas Joy. It stars Daneille Panabaker (Joy) and Matt Long (Ben). Panabaker plays a market researcher in Washington, DC who is just about to receive a big promotion but is called back to her hometown of Crystal Falls to take care of her Aunt Ruby recovering from surgery. Who does she run into but her former crush, Ben.
It seems Aunt Ruby is the person responsible for running the town’s legendary Christmas celebration called the “Cookie Crawl.” Joy volunteers to take over Ruby’s place much to the amusement of Ben, who knows Joy has no idea of the undertaking of this event.
It seems the Cookie Crawl involves making hundreds of cookies including sugar cookies, brownies, shortbread, chocolate chip, thumbprints, and lemon bars. For the recipe this week I decided to revisit some of my old blogs that actually fit the bill for the Cookie Crawl! Here they are with links provided for the recipes.

That’s a start for a Cookie Crawl! Find out what happens with Joy and Ben at the baking competition. Do you think they will fall in love again or just eat cookies? Or maybe both? Find out tonight, Saturday November 3 at 8pm/7c!
They don’t look like they are thinking about cookies…
