Another day, another exciting Christmas treat from Hallmark.

Last week, Crown Media Family Networks announced the launch of Hallmark Drama's Christmas Cookie Countdown, a five-episode competition series, which, according to a news release, features "some of the most talented amateur home bakers around the country and the most exciting yuletide cookie challenges the holiday season has ever seen."

Honestly, you had us at Christmas cookie, Hallmark!

The series will reportedly be judged by a panel of three well-known pastry chefs and hosted by a rotating panel of familiar Hallmark faces who will "offer encouragement and support the teams throughout the competition." It is Hallmark Drama Network's first endeavor into original content.
