Saturday Spotlight: This Week's Top 10 Cookies

I don't know about you, but I'm glad to see us finally emerging from the polar vortex - at least on this site. Not that all the snowflakes, penguins, and other wintry cookies weren't great. They were! But . . . they kept reminding me of my sub-zero plight. (Here in Missouri we've been experiencing an unearthly cold, which has made cookie decorating in my basement - my usual work space - pretty much out the question for way too long. )


But suddenly, as if out of thin air, there are brighter, more spring-y cookies of all types drifting lyrically onto our site. And their sunny dispositions are warming up my mood! So much so that I posted a cheery new site backdrop today . . .



I think it's my favorite of all the backdrops that Pretty Sweet Designs has made for me! But I digress . . .


My point is: this week's top cookies have brightened my bleak winter day, and I am grateful for that. I'm also pretty certain that they'll work the same magic on you!


Enjoy, and congrats to everyone in this week's Spotlight!

* 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.
