While summer doesn't officially hit those of us in the Northern Hemisphere until June 21, it sure feels like summer today here in Kingston, Tennessee, where I'm attending a family wedding!
While the above view looks idyllic, the temperature is nearing 100°F, and I fear I haven't brought a dress that's summery enough! I may have to resort to a t-shirt and shorts - yikes!
Just as summer has announced its early arrival where I am, so too has it signaled its approach in this week's hot list.* Whether tropical flowers, sailboats, lighthouses, sea creatures, or June weddings and celebrations, our featured cookies have the new season covered in today's Spotlight!
So ready to see them? Okay then, let's hit it! Here they are, ordered according to how they are currently trending on the site . . .

Congratulations again to everyone! Now, I'm off to deal with the pressing issue of what to wear tonight . . . at least I know my wedding gift will be appropriately dressed. Did I mention that cookies aren't the only thing I like to decorate?
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.
