Spring continues springing up here on Cookie Connection! After a robust list of springtime and Easter cookies in last week's Spotlight, you all have outdone yourselves again. This week's hot list* presents cherry blossoms three ways (intricately painted, with piped cutwork embroidery, and alongside piped Japanese textile patterns); Easter eggs in two vibrant styles; and other spring flowers of various sorts (mimosa, crocuses, and folk art-style daisies, to name a few). It's clear to me you're all enjoying the start of the new season, and I am thrilled to see how it has inspired your cookies.
Read on, everyone, for a most charming edition of our Spotlight. And congrats to all of our featured honorees! Keep on cookie-ing!

Wonderful work, everyone. I can't wait to see the cookies that spring up next week!
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.
