Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Mothers' Day Cookies

 

Yes, it's almost Mom's big day, so if you haven't yet come up with a wonderful gift for her, there's no time like the present! If you're ambitious, you'll find plenty of inspiration for wonderful cookie gifts in this week's hot list*, including buckets of pansies, floral tea bags, smiley faces full of sunshine, and an abundance of gorgeous roses. 

Okay, granted, it's a little too late to whip up one of these masterpieces and have it all neatly tied up with a bow by tomorrow.  But don't despair! A lot of my best mother-daughter moments happened in the kitchen, making cookies. The end results weren't always pretty, and the process was usually far from neat (the icing more often landed on us than on the cookies). But the shared time together was the best gift we could have given each other!

So, go grab your mom tomorrow, along with your favorite bits of inspiration from this Spotlight, and focus on making the most important thing: memories. If you're lucky enough to create a masterpiece or two along the way, then that's just icing on the cake (or the cookie, in this case)!

Happy Mothers' Day!

* 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.

Thanks, it's an oldie, but goodie. (It actually appears on the dedication page of my first book, which I dedicated to my Mom for getting me started early in the kitchen.)

Wonderful memories with mom in the kitchen here, too. I feel so much gratitude for moms who still take time out of their busy day to do stuff with their kids... and the kitchen is such a natural place to start. Thank you all, and Happy Mother's Day! - Sonja
