Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Fall Cookies Redux

Just two or three weeks ago, I was worried that I might have sprung fall cookies on you too soon. But now I'm wondering if I didn't start early enough! Given the abundant crop of autumn-inspired cookies posted to Cookie Connection in recent weeks, I could very well be highlighting this season into eternity!


While an expected cast of fall characters - leaves, pumpkins, goblins, ghouls, etc. - follows, each of this week's honorees ranks high because of its special element of surprise. You'll see unique cookie arrangements, complex combinations of techniques, sublime color palettes, and even cookies that beckon us to play before we eat. Enjoy, and congrats to this week's winners!

* 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.
