* As a reminder, a word about how the rankings are determined: The rankings are not at all subjective. In fact, they are determined essentially by you, our members, and the activity (number of views, likes, and comments) you've bestowed on each photo. The site uses a top-secret algorithm that weighs these various factors to determine which photos are trending most quickly (i.e., are the "hottest") over specified periods of time. As such, the hot list at the time of this announcement may look a little different a few hours or a day from now as more photos are added to the site.

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.

All photos shown here are the courtesy (and copyright) of the designers listed.

To check out our other hot lists, at any time of day, visit our Hot Spot, also found in the site's main navigation line.

Thank you Teri. Your words express everything I think and feel, but I can't say so well. Thanks to Julia and everybody who contributes in any way to this wonderful cookie world! How lucky we are! ❤️

When I see all those great cookies I start feeling a bit sad, as I am not in X-Mas mood at all *sniff*

But how could I? Currently it's so warm over here that my strawberries have started to bloom! When making X-Mas cookies yesterday that was quite bizarre, after just having seen strawberry blossoms

I guess I'll take a second, and third, look at the spotlights and hum some Christmas songs - maybe this will do the trick...
