As Annie tries to crack the case and uncover the culprit she works with Sam, the owner of a local bakery, to recreate the recipe in the hope of saving the company and her job.
I watched A Christmas Cookie Catastrophe. I usually like Rachel Boston and Victor Webster. They made this work. But Rachel was caffeinated through most of the whole movie. She kind of played one note through most of it. Until one of her employees even said to her, "Please be KIND." Then she stopped acting like a bull in a china shop and apologized and slowed down. I get that it was part of her character growing. But, it was far into the movie. I'm not sure I would have liked the movie if I wasn't a fan of Rachel.
Victor was his usual good leading man. This movie kind of reminded me of the one he did where he played a botanist who had a great nose for scents, and was needed to recreate a lost perfume recipe. In this movie, it's a lost cookie recipe he was trying to recreate.
