Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Thanksgiving Cookies Redux

 

It used to be, not long ago, that cookiers hopped from Halloween to Christmas, bypassing turkeys, pilgrims, and all other Thanksgiving themes without skipping a beat. But with the explosive interest in cookie decorating as of late, Cookie Connection is seeing more than its usual share of Thanksgiving cookies this year. In fact, there's been such an upsurge in gobblers, scarecrows, and pumpkin pies that I had no choice but to showcase Thanksgiving cookies again this week. 

Too often quantity is not synonymous with quality, but I think you'll see them happily coexisting here. Enjoy!

And, to those who celebrate the holiday, have a wonderful time with family and friends next week.

P.S. I'll be away for Thanksgiving break through November 30, so the next Saturday Spotlight will be on our NEW SITE on December 5. Haven't heard about the new Cookie Connection?! Then be sure to get ready for its launch on November 30 by reading this post, either before or after perusing this Spotlight.

Again, have a great Thanksgiving, everyone. "See" you in about a week!

* 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.

WOW! Thank you so much Julia and the Cookie Connection community! You are all so incredible; I don’t know what to say. It’s my first time ever to make the weeks spotlight, and my cookies claimed four spots. WOWZERS! I am beyond shocked and honored that my exceptionally talented peers enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed making them for others. Thank you so much!
