Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies of the Week


Phew! I must say it's a relief to settle into a "normal", somewhat more leisurely routine after a week of madly dashing through airports and setting and re-setting for cookie classes. (My course in Argentina was crazy-busy!) One of the parts of my routine that I love most is sitting down to prep the Saturday Spotlight each week. Reviewing gorgeous cookie photos is strangely soothing, and it always spurs new decorating ideas!

This week's hot list* runs the gamut with everything from summer to fall cookies, and others completely unrelated to any season. Yet, despite this lack of common thread, each cookie pictured below made me smile, register a few lessons learned, and, most important, feel grateful for my weekly spotlighting "task". Here's hoping you have a similar viewing experience!  

Congrats to this week's honorees!

Again, a huge congrats to our featured cookiers. Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone! Put your hectic schedules aside for a bit, and be sure to savor this soothing cookie moment!

* 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.
