Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

 

From the looks of this week's Spotlight, everyone on the site seems to have moved without any hesitation right from Halloween and directly on to Christmas! And what glorious holiday cookies we have on this hot list*! Thanks to your likes, comments and views over the past week, and our site algorithms which automatically tally the fastest trending cookies, Christmas is high on the charts, as you can see.

But, I have to confess, I'm just not ready to go there yet. I'd like to slow down all of the commercialism and superfluous pumping up of holiday purchases that no one really needs, and focus instead on family, friends, and real-life interactions that will truly matter in the end. So while I love all of the wondrous holiday cookies that you see below, some of which were posted recently and others much longer ago, I choose to cling tightly to autumn a bit longer, not only in my non-cookie life, but also in this week's cover image selection! Special congrats to @Maggy morsles on her pumpkin-filled wheelbarrow that earned this honor, and also to @Cláudia Dmytriw Pichek, who made this list twice in one week!

Now, let's check out who else is on it, shall we?!

And that's all for this week! Stay tuned for another Saturday Spotlight next weekend, as well as the release of the next challenge (tomorrow) and announcement of the finalists in my cookie art competition (in and around November 15). I'm so excited for you to see the winning entries! Have a great 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.
