Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


I'm going to keep it snappy this week, as I'm in the throes of prepping for two cookie decorating classes and an upcoming video shoot - but, more importantly, because this week's hot list* truly speaks for itself!

Whether a carefully boxed cookie set, an over-the-top platter for a grill master, or delicate hydrangeas caressed by sugar dew drops, each and every honored image shown below is a work of art. And each and every featured cookier just keeps getting better and better . . . which reminds me . . . I best get back to my cookie decorating, or I risk becoming obsolete! 

Congrats to this week's honorees!

And that's a wrap! (I told you I would be snappy, right?) Wonderful work, everyone!

P.S. Before I dash back to the kitchen to finish some painstaking needlepoint work, just a quick heads-up . . . since I'll be teaching at Cookie Rehab Heartlands all next weekend, there will be no Saturday Spotlight on June 10. Spotlights will resume as usual on June 17. Stay tuned!

* 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 was busy for a while and I didn't post anything for more than 2 month, which is rare to me. Thank you everyone for viewing and liking my cookies! Congrats to all!

Glad to have you back!

What an amazing collection of remarkably creative cookies.  It boggles my mind when I think of how much talent is represented in this weeks Top 10.  Congratulations to every one of you.  Thanks for all the eye candy.
