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!
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.
