Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Halloween Cookies

Admittedly, I'm a little ODed on pumpkins and ghosts around about this time each year!  But considering we've got less than one week to go 'til the big day - and we've got such an abundance of great Halloween cookies on the site - I had no choice but to deliver another "Best of Halloween" spotlight! 




Having talked for 10 hours straight (today was a video shoot day), I've declared a temporary moratorium on excess verbiage. So I'm going to cut to the chase and leave this week's editorial comments to a minimum.


Without further ado, here are the week's top 10 hottest* Halloween picks . . . Eek! Just boo-tiful!  (Sorry, I was just waiting for the right time to use all of our underutilized emoticons!)

So, that's a wrap! Special congrats to our many newcomers to the hot list* this week, including A ja to pierniczę, who took the highly coveted top spot. Happy Halloween!


* 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.
