Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

We've now got about one foot of snow on the ground (which is almost unprecedented for St. Louis) and more is still coming down, so it should probably come as no surprise that I was especially drawn to the spring-y colors and flowers in our cover image by @E. Kiszowara MOJE PIERNIKI. Oh, how I've had enough of winter already and yearn for warmer days! 

Despite our uninviting landscape, hubs and I are going to brave the treacherous roads and head out to dinner soon for a long overdue date night. That being said, I'm going to try to be more pithy than usual  . . . So onward! Let's see who else is topping this week's hot list*, shall we?!

Absolutely stunning work, everyone! I hear my husband stowing the snow shovel (after clearing our walk for the third time today!) and starting the car, so I think that's my cue to say so long - for now. I'll come back in a few hours to share this marvelous work on social media, and to send our honorees their "I was featured" badges. 'Til then, stay warm and cozy yourselves.

* 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.

Congrats, again! I am thrilled you are so happy! But, just to clarify, I am not the one to be thanked for this recognition. I do NOT handpick any of the weekly top 10 myself. They are automatically selected by the site based on how many views, likes and comments images got over the course of the week (and how rapidly they accumulated those comments/likes/etc.) So, really, the people to thank are the members of this site who viewed and reacted to your photo. The only thing I pick is the image from the top 10 that will go in the cover image.
