Hi, everyone! This week's Spotlight is a straight-up pure, unadulterated "top 10", yet, even so, Mothers' Day cookies clearly dominate it. With flowers, jewelry, more flowers, birds, a gilded tea time set, and even more flowers, this hot list* has beautiful cookies galore, all of which would make wonderful gifts for mom. Even if you don't have enough time to crank out a set by tomorrow, bookmark this post and use it as inspiration when next year's Mothers' Day rolls around!
Congrats to all of our honorees, but especially to @Vanilla & Me, whose floral cookies have been riding high (in the top spot) for at least a few weeks, and to @Cookies Fantastique, @The Vintage Cookie Jar, and @Cookie’s Studio by Elena, who are all two-time winners this week. And let's not forget @Alejandra Avila, who's making her very first Spotlight appearance with an outstanding set!

And that's a wrap for this week! I hope everyone has a great Mothers' Day tomorrow - hopefully with some long-awaited reunions with moms, grandmothers, and great grandmothers. Stay safe, but have fun celebrating your loved ones!
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.
