Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

Hi, all! I hope you're still enjoying your Christmas holiday (if you celebrate), just as I am doing here. After a flurry of work to prep my house for the occasion (which precluded me from doing last week's Spotlight), I am finally settling into a slower pace of savoring treats, sipping cocktails, and taking long walks to work off all those added calories. I give myself another two days before I'm kicking into high gear again and working on my first events and newest products for 2021!

'Til then, I leave you with a few photos of my holiday household trappings, but, more importantly, this week's enviable hot list* of Christmas cookies!

If you didn't already know, I'm partial to vintage Santas. (Perhaps I'm still suffering from PTSD after discovering his nonexistence when reading an Archie comic?!) Whatever the explanation, he is everywhere in my house . . .

I also love gift wrapping almost as much as cookie decorating . . .

But, have no fear, I won't digress any more! Let's cut to the always-important cookie chase - this week's top 10! Here, they are, in the order they trended on the site over this past Christmas week . . .

And that's all for this week. So festive, right?! Congrats to our honorees!

Heads up: The next Spotlight will be on January 2, right after the New Year. Start posting those New Year's Eve celebration cookies now so we can ring in 2021 with the proper fanfare! Also, don't forget to submit your entries to @Sweet Prodigy's Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #43 (see guidelines here). It closes on January 3, and we are giving away not one, but three wonderful prizes from @Tunde of Tunde's Creations! Just the possibility of winning one is good enough reason to hasten in 2021!

* 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.
