Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies of the Week

 

Hi, all! I'm back with our "usual" Spotlight after a whirlwind week of triaging the vast amount of CookieCon coverage generated by our talented team of correspondents! Congrats again to Barb Florin, Beverly Parker, Jen Wagman, and Jennifer Wallace on a job well done! Thanks to their words and photos, my heart and soul were teleported to Salt Lake City even though my body was nowhere near there.

SCREECH! Rapid rewind. Did I just say "usual"?! Pardon me for the poor word choice! As anyone who's been around Cookie Connection for any amount of time knows, our clip sets are far from usual. In fact, they rival the best of Sugar Shows across the country - heck, no, across the world! The quality - and quantity - of cookies that this community posts (on a daily basis, no less) never ceases to wow me!

And this week's hot list* is no exception. It features a healthy dose of fall cookies (naturally) and a smattering of cookies in other themes, but all have one thing in common: they are executed flawlessly. Hold onto your pastry bags, put some padding on the floor (where your jaw is most likely to drop), and prepare to be amazed!

(P.S. Two of these cookies were actual CookieCon 2015 Sugar Show entries. Can you guess which ones?)

Wonderful, was I not right?!  A huge round of applause to this week's honorees!

* 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.

Taking a guess at Two of these cookies were actual CookieCon 2015 Sugar Show entries...  Evlindecora and Teri Pringle Wood?
