Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

Hi, all! It's that time again! This week, our Spotlight features a nice blend of old-timers and newcomers, as well as a few Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #42 entries. (BTW, that stained glass challenge closes tomorrow, so HURRY if you want a chance to win a fabulous Arkon Cookie Decorators Mount! More challenge details here.)

All of the cookies on this week's hot list* are phenomenal, but special congrats go to newcomers @Olga Nadyshneva (a two-time honoree with two impressive 3-D creations) and @Gwen Safriet for her ambitious and delightful challenge entry!

Enjoy, and great work, everyone!

* 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.
