Well, I wouldn't have guessed it, but after a week of being on vacation with nary a cookie in sight, I was overjoyed to return to work (aka Cookie Connection) on Wednesday, and to be inundated with all of your fabulous creations! I couldn't have asked for a better, more pleasant way to ease back into real life! So, thank you!
This week's Spotlight features the top ten cookies of the past week, which collectively demonstrate an impressive range of themes and techniques. Boy, you never cease to amaze me with your ingenuity!

A big round of applause to this week's honorees! And thanks once again for making my return to work such a picturesque one. I dare say, cookies might just have the Maine landscape beat!
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.
