Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Well, I thought spring had sprung here in St. Louis . . . As recently as yesterday, the thermometer was hovering around 70 degrees, and the daffodils and magnolias, so weighty with blooms, were straining their branches and stems. But, alas, I awoke to a brisk 30-degree morn with snow on the ground! While I didn't mind donning my winter boots and coat once again, I did take issue with Mother Nature when I saw all of my once-lush magnolias turned limp and brown. Harrumph!

Thankfully, spring has arrived here on Cookie Connection, and your cookie versions of flowers, birds, and other Easter-y things have distracted me from my magnolia debacle. I must say, I'd be content to stay staring at this week's hot list* until the last of winter melts away!

Congrats to all of those honored this week - your work is gorgeous!

Happy spring, everyone! Stay tuned for next week - instead of the usual Spotlight, I'll be doing a comprehensive recap of the Sugar Show at CookieCon 2017!

* 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.

It is such a joy to have both of my cookie sets featured, thanks to every fellow cookier that viewed, liked and left a comment. Thank you, @Julia M. Usher, for the honor of the cover photo.

It's amazing Manu! You deserve it, you have outdone yourself with these ingenious sets, can't stop admiring them! Happy Sunday!!!

I should thank Evelin for trusting me enough to do this little collaboration with her.  

Mostly, thank you Julia for honoring my cookies.  

Wishing everyone a beautiful Spring!
