If you're like me and sad to see Christmas come and go so swiftly, then take a moment to relive it with this belated Saturday Spotlight! This hot list* features the ten top-trending Christmas cookies over the last seven days, and is, without a doubt, a treasure trove of Christmas-y delights that's sure to extend the joy of the holiday season! Just take a look! Also, special congrats to site contributor @Icingsugarkeks, aka Gabi, for earning the coveted cover spot and two mentions this week.

P.S. If you missed my photo message on the site on December 26, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas filled with family, friends, and cookies - of course!
Also, please note that because New Year's Eve falls on a Saturday just like Christmas Eve, the next Saturday Spotlight will also be delayed by one or two days. That being said, happy (early) New Year to all of you too!
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.
