Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Even though we're in the midst of the last lazy days of summer, when most of the rest of the world is lollygagging on beaches or in parks, you folks never cease to amaze me with your high levels of productivity and general proclivity to stay within arm's length of your icing and pastry bags. We've got another great roundup of cookies on our hot list* this week - most of which are solidly in the summer theme. With everything from watermelon slices and ice cream cones to sharks and other sea creatures, our honorees evidently had no trouble conjuring up the season even within the confines of their kitchens.  Enjoy, and congrats to all listed!

Wonderful work, honorees, and thanks for the abundance of summertime inspiration. 'Til next weekend, happy cookie decorating, everyone!

* 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.

A heartfelt thank you for being in this spotlight to all those that took the time to like my work or leave an encouraging comment. 

Every week the bar of excellence is raised by so many talented Cookiers  so I feel really  excited to be included in any CC spotlight. 

Thank you Julia for this amazing platform.  I know how much time and love you put into maintaining it. 

I, too, add my congratulations to everyone! I'm being repetitive here but I also am so very appreciative to everyone who took the time and effort to write such kind comments about my post ❤.

Julia, @Julia M. Usher, you have my deepest thanks for creating Cookie Connection! You put so much of yourself into this wonderful site.

The artistic work on CC is a constant inspiration! And what a joy it is to meet other cookiers who share  this unique passion .
