Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


With the frenzied prep for my next video shoot (next weekend) coming to a close, it's nice to finally be able to relax for more than a sec and to really savor what's on this week's hot list*. And savor I have - this week's roundup is quite the sight for tired eyes! It's got tons of cheery Valentine's Day ideas (hearts, gnomes, love letters, etc.), as well as a smattering of other lovely things, including the first Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #38 entry, an equestrian set, and a violet baby shower sampler. (BTW, If you haven't yet checked out Challenge #38, please do. It's a special collaboration in honor of @Bakerloo Station's last challenge, and I really want you all to send her off in style! )

Speaking of style, let's see all the snazzy designs you guys delivered this week! But before the first reveal, special congrats to Spotlight veteran @Teri Pringle Wood for three hot-listed photos, to @The Vintage Cookie Jar for two mentions, and to newcomer @Jen of Joyful Valley for her Spotlight debut! Woo hoo!

And that's a wrap for this week! Congrats again, everyone!

Even though I'll be fresh off a video shoot on February 1, I still plan to bring you a Spotlight at the usual place and time. However . . . please note that, the following Saturday (February 8), I will be traveling and therefore unable to post. That being said, bring your A-games next week, folks (silly me, as if you need a reminder )! That way, we can savor the upcoming Spotlight for a solid two weeks!  

* 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.
