Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Christmas Cookies

 

Hi, everyone! Thanks so much for the brief respite from the Spotlight over the last two weekends. Having a week off did me a world of good! I can finally think clearly enough to resume my cookie work! I sincerely hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break as well (that is, if you celebrate). From the looks of today's hot list*, you've rapidly regrouped since Turkey Day and are well on your way to stocking up with stunning cookies for the Christmas holiday!

If you're a last-minute Charlie (like me) and haven't yet started your holiday baking, then this hot list should be right up your alley as well. It's got everything from traditional snowflakes and wintry landscapes to novel cookie arrays and scrapbook-style designs to stoke your creative fire! Enjoy, and congrats to this week's honorees!

As of posting time, it has amassed a whopping 24,176 views!]

Congrats again to this week's honorees for starting our holiday decorating off on the right foot! I look forward to seeing more of your Christmas creations in the run-up to the big day!

* 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.

@Szilvia and @Reina Tranquility, Congrats again! But, just to clarify, I do not handpick the photos that get featured here. The top list is automatically determined by a site algorithm which tracks how rapidly photos have  accumulated views, likes, and comments over the last week. So, you should really be thanking all the members here who liked and commented on your photos!
