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

 

Too often here in cookie land, we skip from Valentine's Day to Easter, without giving St. Patrick's Day even a sideways glance. I've never been quite sure why that is, as leprechauns, when done right, can be so darn cute. Celtic patterns are nothing if not mesmerizing. Shimmering pots of gold will draw anyone's eye. And, moreover, who wouldn't prefer a platter of cookies to a mug of green beer (yick)?!

Still not convinced to do a St. Paddy's Day set?! Then read on, and I think you might just change your mind. This week's hot list* has done a splendid job of cookie-fying this oft-overlooked holiday.

A veritable gold mine of cookies, was I not right?! Congrats to this week's honorees for being top o' the site! 

* 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.

I need to be faster. I'm just now working on St. Patrick's Day! At least I have some wonderful inspiration. Great job everyone!

If it's any consolation, a couple of the images that made the hot list were posted last year.
