I never cease to marvel at how many different interpretations there can be of the same basic shape. And nothing underscores this point better than the variety of Easter eggs that have graced the site this past week!
While it's verging on too late to post about Easter cookies, I couldn't resist sharing this eggs-travaganza of decorating ideas. If you're ever in a cookie rut, thinking it's all been done before, then pull up this post and remind yourself that even everyday shapes can take on a unique look with the right touch.
Congrats to this week's honorees* - the top 10 egg-shaped cookies within our Easter clip set! And happy Easter to all who celebrate!

* 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.
