It's certifiably autumnal here - meaning both here in Maine, where I am tending to home-away-from-home matters this week, and in this Spotlight. In the course of the few days between my arrival on Monday and today, the trees have turned from having just a few sparks of orange from place to place to fully ablaze with fall colors everywhere. It's a spectacular time of year!
And, as you’ll soon see, this week’s top 10 cookies, many styled in brilliant fall and Halloween colors, are just as spectacular. (BTW, pictured above is the harbor across from my house in Maine. Get a load of that tree!)
Okay now . . . onward to the glorious honorees on this week's hot list*!

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.
