Okay, why is it that fathers are so darn hard to cookie for? Theories, anyone?! All I know is that I usually experience major creative block whenever I start to think about Father's Day cookies, and I suspect I'm not the only one.
That's why we're giving Father's Day cookie-ing a headstart here on Cookie Connection with this week's Spotlight. Mother's Day isn't even over yet, so my apologies to moms for diverting the attention from them - but we need to move onto dads tout suite in order to be assured that we'll have fantabulous cookies for them in a month!
Fortunately for you, this week's roundup of Father's Day cookies offers lots of food for thought. And you'll find plenty more ideas where these came from in our Father's Day clip set! Enjoy, and congrats to this week's honorees.

And that's it for this week's Spotlight. Now that you're well equipped with Father's Day ideas, please relax while celebrating your moms tomorrow!
