Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Thanksgiving Cookies

 

I'm back from Japan - and from the associated jet lag (I think)! Thanks, everyone, for granting me a little reprieve from Spotlights as I tended to my cookie courses. While the classes and whole experience were magical, it is nice to once again feel home turf underfoot and to be settling into my usual cookie- and video-making routine.

Now, to the matter at hand - Thanksgiving! The Halloween candy is long gone, and it's time to start cranking your ovens for this next big food holiday. But . . . crank no further than needed for cookies, because, truly, no one will want a pie after they see this week's hot list*! The cookies below are universally gorgeous, and so in tune with the Thanksgiving theme! Just scroll on down to see what I mean!

(Special congrats to @Teri Pringle Wood, who dominates this lineup with four cookies! It pays to post regularly, people - and with content that aligns with the seasons!)

So, what are you waiting for?! Load your cookie dough with pumpkin spice, take some design cues from the stunning cookies above, and say "so long" - possibly forever - to the all-too-predictable Thanksgiving pie!

* As a reminder, a word about how the rankings are determined: The rankings are not at all subjective. In fact, they are determined essentially by you, our members, and the activity (number of views, likes, and comments) you've bestowed on each photo. The site uses a top-secret algorithm that weighs these various factors to determine which photos are trending most quickly (i.e., are the "hottest") over specified periods of time. As such, the hot list at the time of this announcement may look a little different a few hours or a day from now as more photos are added to the site.

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.

All photos shown here are the courtesy (and copyright) of the designers listed.

To check out our other hot lists, at any time of day, visit our Hot Spot, also found in the site's main navigation line.

@Julia M. Usher of course it is and it will always be! After many years I am focused on cookies it is great to know that people still like what I do, it is a joy and a goal to continuously improve technical but mostly emotional sides of this work. You have just come back from the ‘trip of my life’: Japan, I have been there several years ago and never had the chance again to repeat  that magical experience. I’ll treasure it forever, I wish you had a great time there too!

Gorgeous works of art everyone!!! Congratulations for all your hard work. And what beautiful cookies they are. Perfect to get me in the mood for some Thanksgiving cookie decorating ❤️.

Wow Teri @Teri Pringle Wood...an amazing 4 spotlighted cookies! Is this a new record? Your work is always amazingly creative and detailed. Love all that you do ❤️❤️❤️.
