Anyone for some Christmas Cookie(s)? 

If you were worried about missing Cookie Lyon’s special charm and fur coats over the festive season when Empire takes its winter break, Taraji P. Henson has the best gift ever. The Golden Globe-winning star is set to return for Fox’s second annual music and variety special, Taraji’s White Hot Holidays.

The actress, who portrays Cookie on the Fox hit, will be joined for the one-hour special by her on-screen son Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon). Taye Diggs, Pharrell Williams, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys, Darryl McDaniels (Run-DMC), Snoop Dogg, and TLC will all also be stopping by to spread some holiday cheer with performances of classic holiday songs.

Last year’s special saw Henson joined by Empire costar Terrence Howard to share some holiday joy with comedy sketches and Christmas songs.
