Saturday (Ahem, Sunday) Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


First, my apologies for the delayed Spotlight this week. I wish I could say that all of the prematurely blooming flowers here in St. Louis (daffodils, magnolias, and red buds already!) gave me a bout of spring fever, and I was off frolicking among the fragrant blossoms. But, alas, my only excuse is: I had a really tough work week, and staring one more second at the computer just wasn't an option yesterday. 

But, today, after reviewing the spring-y delights on this site in prep for this post, I feel refreshed and full of renewed creative vigor! With colorful tulips, Easter eggs galore, and other harbingers of spring, this week's hot list* is sure to uplift everyone's spirit, as it did mine, and brighten the coming week. Enjoy!

* 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.
