(Early) Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Thanksgiving Cookies


As I am nearly on my way out the door for a week of vacation, I decided to bring you this week's Spotlight a little early! And, as turkey day is nearly upon us all (here in the US, that is), there's no more fitting subject matter for this Spotlight than Thanksgiving!

My apologies, but I'm going to serve up this week's hot list* rather snappily, as loads of laundry and packing still await me . . . Please say congrats to all whose cookies are featured below! A special shout-out is also in order for @Penny White who has four lovely sets featured this week, including the one in the title image.

Last but not least, happy Thanksgiving wishes to all who celebrate. May your day be filled with the love of family and friends - and at least a few cookies amidst the usual plethora of pumpkin and pecan pies!

Once again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone! Please note: I reserve the right not to post a Spotlight next weekend, as I will still be on vacation. Though I will surely try!

* 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.
