The judging was done by a panel of cookie experts, kids, with Blais’ approval and together they declared Emily’s cookies the official winner of the 2017 Good Morning America Christmas Cookie Showdown.

We spoke to Emily and she was so excited for the honor but super tired. She only learned that she would be on the show at the first of this week. Then she set out baking and decorating. She flew out of Texarkana on Thursday and was up and ready way before dawn to be on the set of the popular live morning show.
