So sorry for the delay in posting this week's featured cookies*, but as you may or may not know, last week I was visiting Naples (Florida and Italy), where I enjoyed attractions as incongruous as alligators in the Everglades and flour mills in ancient Pompeii! I just got home late last night, and am still struggling with real world-reentry.
Fortunately, this week's winners made writing this post super effortless for me. As eclectic as they are (just like last week), they all feel congruent to me in their excellence and sheer artistry.
We've got spiders (in two forms), a seaside wedding motif, Halloween creations, and Christmas goodies, among other pretty things. Enjoy, and congrats to all of the honorees!
#7: Tatty Teddy by Maggie Loves Cookies [EDITOR'S NOTE: On the hot list for I don't know how many weeks, this cookie is another strong contender for Cookie of the Year! ]
* 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.
