Amesbury’s cookie artist to be featured on Food Network | New

AMESBURY – Renee Terry enjoys baking cookies and cakes so much that she makes them all her life and will be bringing her expertise to the Food Network on Thursday.

Terry started his bakery business, Sweet Cheeks by Renee, in his parents’ basement in Haverhill shortly after the birth of his first child in 2015.

“I really do everything,” said Terry. “My husband bakes for me, but that’s it. I am a cookie artist, cake artist, and confectionery artist. I really don’t consider myself to be a baker, however. Even though I do baking, it’s the art that people really know me for.

The mother of two now works at her home in Amesbury and has spent the last few years trying to participate in the Food Network’s ‘Christmas Cookie Challenge’. She will appear on the reality show Thursday at 9 p.m.

“They ended up contacting me this year,” said Terry. “So I had about two weeks to prepare and headed down to Knoxville, Tennessee.”

“Christmas Cookie Challenge,” hosted by Eddie Jackson and Ree Drummond, pits five cookie artists from across the country in a contest to create the best holiday-themed cookies, ultimately resulting in an ugly 15-inch Christmas cookie.

“The first challenge is to create six cookies,” said Terry. “The first three were to be a gift to Santa Claus and the rest were to be Santa Claus using his gift.”

Although she couldn’t go into the details of her next TV appearance, Terry said she had a great time on the show.

“We had a candidate from New York, we had someone from California, someone from New Jersey,” she said. “We were all very supportive of each other. It wasn’t one of those things where we all just sat there being mad at each other and trying to get lost. It was very encouraging and we really made sure everyone was at their best.

The televised baking contest will take place in a single hour-long episode on Thursday.

“It was a great experience,” she said. “It was very stressful and overwhelming, but I learned a lot about my skills and my skills. It also kind of forced me out of my comfort zone of my tiny home with my two kids. It also helped me surpass myself nationally with four other amazing cookie artists. “
