Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies of the Week!


Wowza! What a wonderful collection of cookies topping our site this week! As is often the case, there's no consistent theme among them, other than that each one is gorgeous in its own right. Today's hot list* features simple, but striking sunflowers, an amazingly intricate butterfly puzzle, lifelike turquoise and silver jewelry, stunning fondant-covered wedding hearts, several Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #23 entries, and many other jaw-droppers. I have no doubt that you'll be amazed and impressed.Congrats to this week's honorees!

Of course, please remember that this site isn't only about featuring fabulous cookies. By sharing here, our members also aim to educate and inform.

Breathtaking, was I not right?!  Congrats again to our featured cookie artists, and may this hot list be an inspiration to everyone! I know it's got me amped up to try out some new ideas this 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.
