Wow, what fickle people we cookiers are! A couple of days ago, even before Valentine's Day had passed, chicks and spring flowers were beginning to lure us away from hearts, Cupids, and other love-themed sets. Or maybe it was just the sudden cold snap that turned us on to warmer, springier motifs? (It was 6°F here yesterday! Yikes!)
No matter the motive, we've clearly moved on to the next cookie holiday, as this week's hot list* can attest. Sure, it's got some hearts here and there, but spring and Easter themes are definitely giving those valentines a run for their money!
Enjoy this week's featured cookies, and please say congrats to their creators along the way!

Congrats again, everyone! A quick housekeeping note before I leave you to enjoy the rest of your weekend: I will be out of town starting February 21 for both my cookie competition at That Takes the Cake and CookieCon, so I will not be posting Spotlights for the next two weeks. (So sorry, but the pace of these events can be grueling.) Spotlights will resume on Saturday, March 7, along with a 10 am (central) chat with Toni Miller of The Sprinkle Factory. 'Til then, happy cookie-ing! Hopefully, I will see some of you on my travels!
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.
