Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Halloween Cookies


In a mere two weeks, the kiddos will be traipsing through our neighborhoods, in full goblin and ghost garb, in quest of Halloween sweets. I realize that we (sadly, IMO) live in a time when the most trusted treats are store-bought, individually wrapped, generic mass-produced candies. But . . . there's no reason we can't surprise (or even startle!) those we know and love with distinctive Halloween treats in the form of jaw-droppingly boo-tiful cookies, right?!

RIGHT! And this week's hot list* has just the inspiration for this task. You name it - ghosts, mummies, coffins, pumpkins, and spiders - our top ten honorees have all Halloween subjects and decorating techniques covered! Congrats to each and every one of them, but especially to the many newcomers to the list!

Please enjoy making a special mark this season by creating your own custom cookies! 

* 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.
