Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Ooh, I just love this time of year on the site, don't you? I mean, who needs visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads when there are so many glorious Christmas cookies dancing across our screens?! Tonight, I'm featuring this week's top ten cookies, but it should come as no surprise that nearly all (but for one Thanksgiving straggler) are Christmas-themed. From handpainted wreaths to cheery snow globes, our hot list* has nearly every holiday motif covered. It's a virtual Christmas gift full of inspiration, just waiting to be opened!

Onward, shall we? I'm sure you're dying to unwrap this early Christmas present!

#1: Merry Christmas, Y'all by heidijo [EDITOR'S NOTE: If this trio of Santas seems familiar, it's because it's a very popular blast from the past, first posted last year!]

* 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.
