Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

Once again, we've hopped-skipped-and-jumped straight from Halloween and onto Christmas! (Aside: I've never understood why Thanksgiving gets the short end of the cookie-stick each year, but I've got some new Thanksgiving - and other - cookie stencils coming out in two weeks that will hopefully reverse this trend once and for all!)

Shameless self-promotion aside, let's get to this week's hot list*, shall we?! 

While a couple of popular Halloween and autumn cookies continue to top our charts with tens of thousands of views (way to go, @Dhsprad and @Evelindecora), it's snowflakes, reindeer, and snow globes that are catching the greatest interest right now. Special congrats to the always prolific @Teri Pringle Wood who has five (yes, five!) cookies in this Spotlight. It just goes to show that there's nothing but upside to posting  lots of cookies here! Teri's work happens to be fabulous as well, but she is also extremely generous in posting her work to this site. Thank you, Teri!

Great, huh? If these lovelies don't put you in the holiday spirit, I'm not sure what will!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and next week! And, if you're a US citizen, please remember to exercise your right to vote!

* 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.
