Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Bunnies, blooms, and sparkle. What a wonderful way to salute the first week of spring! I'm not sure how the weather is where you are, but, in my neighborhood, spring is definitely in the air. Bunnies are hopping, and flower buds are popping. (Of course, the hopping bunnies are eating the popping buds, but that's a topic for another day.) The topic for today is the delightful cookies that have trended the fastest over the past seven days. It's an Easter parade of springtime sweetness and . . . a unicorn!

#1: Unicorn and Cat Cookie Set by Goloven Olga (I love the vibrant colors in this collection.)

So there you have it . . . the cookies that have been hoppin' and poppin' the most over the past seven days. A bit of nature, a bit of Easter, and a bit of magic. The perfect end to the first week of spring. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone shares in week two!

* 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.


Lisa Foss is a hobbyist cookie decorator. After careers in corporate communications and freelance writing, she focused her attention on the nonprofit sector. She spent more than a decade at various soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and prison reentry programs throughout New York City. Lisa’s cookie journey began in 2011 when she started making gingerbread houses. After getting a handle on construction, she focused on improving her decorating skills through books, videos, and online tutorials. This exploration brought her to Cookie Connection, which has provided her with an incredible community to learn from and grow with. Though she enjoys making cookies for family and friends, Lisa’s main focus is cookies for charity. She has frequently donated cookies to Food Bank for New York City, Boys and Girls Club of Harlem, and the Children’s Aid Society, among others. In 2020, Lisa and her husband moved from New York to the eastern shore of Maryland where they already had a part-time residence. The move has enabled her to significantly improve her decorating skills. She continues to donate cookies to various local charities.
