Phew! Time never stands still in cookie decorating land! With the New Year now squarely behind us (for all of five days ), you folks have moved full speed ahead into Valentine's Day. We've already got a plethora of hearts, doves, flowers, Cupids, and other romance-filled cookies beautifying our site, so I thought that, tonight, I'd honor the ten top-trending harbingers of our next big cookie holiday!

Now, if those cookies didn't win your heart, I'm not sure what will! Though stay tuned . . . We're just getting started here on Cookie Connection, and I am sure other swoon-worthy cookies will be posted in the run-up to the big day.
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.
