Judging from your posts this past week, there's been an outbreak of spring fever! And it's a downright epidemic - with spring-y cookies popping up everywhere!
This week's hot list* is no exception. It's got early-blooming roses galore (thanks to the motivation of our current classic rose-piping challenge), garden critters, a carousel with baby animals, and myriad other flowers on just about any cookie shape you can imagine. I hope you'll take a break from your spring cleaning or whatever might be keeping you busy this weekend to stop and smell the roses (BTW, that's code for: stop and view these breathtaking cookies ). You are sure to be inspired - plus, if you're still scratching your head about what to do for Mom in a few weeks, there are plenty of great Mothers' Day ideas here. Enjoy!

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.
