Saturday Spotlight: The Week's Top 10 Cookies


While there were still a few Christmas hold-outs topping today's hot list*, like the lovely spruce sprig pictured above by Honeycat Cookies, it seems like the majority of you have promptly changed color palettes and moved from evergreens and snow onto hearts and roses. Yes, it's Valentine's Day here on Cookie Connection, and I couldn't be happier - it just so happens to be my favorite cookie holiday! 

In addition to those hearts and roses, you've surprised me this week with some less traditional themes, such as Valentine's gnomes, dolls, and Mason jars. Go figure!

If you haven't yet started designing your Valentine's sets, I assure you, you'll find plenty of ideas here that will set your heart aflutter. 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.
