Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies


I love the crisp nip of cool air on fall mornings, and the brilliance of the changing leaves - not to mention the abundance of autumn cookie designs that invariably hit our site this time each year! We've got some true beauties of the season this week, including ones created by Spotlight veterans like @Teri Pringle Wood and @mintlemonade (cookie crumbs), as well as others created by first-timers to our hot list*! Special congrats to these latter folks, @Danielle Robinson (whose beautiful work appears in BOTH the cover image and top spot), @Radiki's Cakes, and @carolina santiago. (If I've missed anyone, my apologies!)

Without further ado, let's check out this week's honorees, shall we? Take notes, because there's plenty of seasonal (and not-so-seasonal) inspiration here!

That's all for this week! Congrats again to all of our honorees! I'll be back next Saturday with more stunning cookies, I'm sure! Keep on cookie-ing and sharing; it's a joy to see your creations week after week!

* 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.
