Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


Hi, all! I'm fresh off a flight from Maine, where I was checking on my two-plus-year-long home renovation (yikes!), so I will keep this Spotlight very brief out of necessity for sleep. (See below for a sneak peek of one of my favorite rooms in the house - the powder room, still unpainted and sans sink and toilet. I think the tile would make a great cookie design though!)


Anywho, I digress. That's what happens when you've been inhaling paint fumes and drywall dust (and who knows what else) for the last 48 hours. But back to the topic at hand . . .

We've got a wondrous array of cookies on this week's hot list*, which should come as no surprise. (I can't think of a Spotlight that had anything less than spectacular work.) This week, though, is a bit unique, in that we have a few newcomers to the list, if my calculations are correct. Special congrats to @Little-Fancies, @Mary's Cookie Madness, and @Patricia Johnson. I look forward to seeing more from them in future Spotlights!

Now, onto our lineup, starting with the top-trending photo of this past week . . .

Congrats again, everyone! I'm off to bed now, fully expecting visions of Polished Slate, Fort Pierce Green, Boca Raton Blue, and other Benjamin Moore paint colors to be dancing in my head. "See" you next week, hopefully with less house stuff clouding my brain.

* 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.
