Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Once again, we're hop-skip-and-jumping from Halloween directly onto Christmas, judging from this week's hot list*. I still reserve hope that, one day in the not-too-distant future, cookies will supplant pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving! But, until then, let's enjoy the ghouls and goblins that invariably commingle with the first Santas and snowmen that appear like clockwork this time each year.

In addition to these seasonal characters, this week's Top 10 list features a number of glorious vintage sets, submitted as part of our ongoing Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #25. (Remember: It's not too late to enter! The challenge is open until November 5, and the randomly drawn prize will be one of my new airbrush systems! Woo hoo!)

With that brief public service announcement behind us , let's say hello to this week's honorees . . .

#1: Halloween by Dhsprad [EDITOR'S NOTE: First posted in October 2014, this set is getting a second - or third or fourth - wind, after having caught the attention of some external sites. Its 21,382 views are testament to its universal appeal - and to the power of posting to Cookie Connection! Way to go, @Dhsprad!]

* 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.
