Man, dads always seem to get the short end of the stick when it comes to cookie decorating and gifting. While Mothers' Day cookies started posting here in March and April, and were even spotted as late as last week, just a few of you have started sharing cookies you've made to celebrate Fathers' Day. I'm not sure why this phenomenon persists year after year, but I aim to put an end to it, right here and now, and once and for all, with today's Spotlight!
That being said, may this week's hot list* serve as sweet impetus to get cracking on your Fathers' Day designs. About half of the honorees are recently published cookies, while the other half comes from deep in our archives, back to 2015 and even 2014 and 2013! But, no matter their age, all are timeless tributes to dads, and, taken together, offer up myriad techniques, designs, and themes to brighten your fathers' big day! Enjoy - and just tell your dads to thank me for this nudge when they get their cookies from you in a few weeks!

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.
