Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


I'm back! I returned early this week from summertime temperatures in Jamaica, Cozumel, and Grand Cayman (on Creative Cookiers' recent cookie cruise) to truly fall-like weather here in Missouri! Today, I had to don my first jacket of the season when I went out for my morning walk, and, after five miles, I was refreshed and invigorated rather than in dire need of a shower. (There's more than me who's grateful for that!

Likewise, I'm seeing more consistently fall-like subject matter on this week's hot list*. I love all the nature themes and rich auburn and bronze tones that have cropped up while I was away. Yay! I think it's safe to say that my favorite season has officially arrived! And you've all done a remarkable job of capturing it!

So, without further rambling on my part, let's see the cookies that made it to tonight's Spotlight!

#1: "Cacti and Roses" Back-to-School Cookies by Evelindecora

Worth the wait, right?! 

#9: Fall Pine Cones and Acorns by Kim Damon [EDITOR'S NOTE: I must confess, I'm a bit partial to this set, as it uses - masterfully, I might add - my "Noel" stencil for the green background! ]#8 - Fall Pine Cones and Acorns by Kim Damon

And, last but not least, site sweetheart @Evelindecora makes a second grand appearance . . .

Congrats again to this week's honorees!

Before I leave you, yet a few more housekeeping notes (I've had a lot of them lately, I apologize): I'll do my darnedest to write Spotlights next weekend and the following, but I reserve the right to flake out, as I am solidly in shows, vending and judging, or classrooms both weekends. Time for a clone, maybe?! 

* 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.
