While fall still lingers on Cookie Connection, Christmas arrived in a beautiful flurry this week! Our hot list* features an old-time Santa, a pair of darling birds wearing knit caps, a reindeer how-to (which first posted in 2013 and hits the top of our charts every holiday season), and a set of ornaments that uses a dazzling array of techniques.
But lest we get too far ahead of ourselves . . . there's still Thanksgiving baking to do and, thankfully, we've got that holiday represented too!
Enjoy the gorgeous seasonal inspiration below, and say congrats to this week's honorees along the way!

And that's a wrap! Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone! I'll be in Maine for a Thanksgiving break next Saturday and the following one, but I still hope to post Spotlights as my energy allows.
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.
