Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


I'm back after a week off, and what a refreshing sight it is to see the marvelous cookies that made it onto our hot list* tonight. Some have been dancing around the top ten photo feed for several days due to their ongoing popularity, while others are brand new posts this week! Isn't it nice how everyone - newbies and old-timers alike - gets a fair shake on this site?!  Naturally, these cookies feature a lot of summertime themes, though some go as far as to venture into back-to-school designs. Whether you're eager to hold onto summer for another few months or not, all of these cookies will delight and amaze.

Congrats to all of our honorees!

Well done, honorees! And, everyone, while you still have some precious downtime this summer, don't forget to take advantage of our latest floral challenge (a boatload of Sugarin® products is being given away) and our upcoming live Zoom chat on August 14. I hope to see you in both places!

* 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.
