Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


We seem to be plagued by SCD (Seasonal Confusion Disorder) on the site this week! Some of you have cookied the transition from summer to fall; others are fully into fall; and still others (in the Southern Hemisphere) are celebrating the arrival of spring! No matter what season you happen to be experiencing, one thing is sure: those on this week's hot list* have beautifully captured Mother Nature (and a few other things) in cookies that are an absolute delight!

Enjoy, and congrats to all of this week's honorees!

And that's all for today's Spotlight! Well done, everyone!

I'll see you again next Saturday around the same time with another list of wonderful cookies. 'Til then, happy cookie-ing in the coming week!

* 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.

A heartfelt congratulations to everyone! All the work this week is so beautiful and creative. Thank you Julia, @Julia M. Usher for your incredible commitment to excellence and your never ceasing hard work.

I am honored and humbled to be included on this week's hot list with such a talented group of cookie artists. Thank you!!!

Thanks, Carol. My pleasure.

Thank you so much! I see you on the SCD (Seasonal Confusion Disorder), Julia. First because I have been living in a hot and endless summer for two years now and second because this fall cookie set was born as a summer set... but I have a problem with coloring the icing (I am not patient) and the colors are more closer to fall than summer.
