Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 St. Patrick's Day Cookies

 

Even if you're not Irish, it's hard not to love impish leprechauns, frosty mugs of green beer, happy-go-lucky shamrocks, and pots of gold - especially when rendered in cookie dough! And, with St. Patrick's Day now just a few weeks away, what better way to celebrate the imminent holiday than with this week's hot list*?!

You'll see many posts from previous years topping this list, which is not only testament to these cookies' staying power, but also clear indication that St. Paddy's Day cookies are hot right now . . . meaning: if you haven't yet capitalized on the coming holiday with cookie orders, you're in luck! Take some cues from this week's cookie stars, mix up the colors of the Irish flag, and fill those pastry bags. You'll find scads of cute ideas below! 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.
