Wow, did you all kick off January with a bang, or what?! If the cookies on this week's hot list* are any indication of what 2016 has in store for us, then it's going to be a banner cookie year!
I'm in no way exaggerating when I say that each honored cookie this week is a veritable work of art. From sushi miniatures and baby shower wreaths to an owl perched on a cookie advent calendar, you've covered the gamut of occasions and themes, and done so with amazing style and expertise. Congrats to everyone here! I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings.

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.
