Thanks for featuring my site Cookie Connection! It’s an honor to be included among the other cookiers listed here! I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank all of my amazing contributors who regularly provide tutorials, challenges, and other content to Cookie Connection, all on a volunteer basis. The site wouldn’t be what it is without their wonderful and hard work!
