Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 New Year Cookies


So, if we're just barely one week into the year, it's still the New Year, right?! Yes, I thought so too, which is why we're showcasing the top-trending cookies that recently rang in 2017!

New Year's can be a tricky theme - after all, how many ways can you display champagne flutes and streamers?! But, as always, Cookie Connection members never cease to amaze! We've got a diverse and creative array of interpretations on our hot list* this week, ranging from wreaths and hot air balloons to more traditional motifs - with no shortage of gold sheen in between! And, as we all know, gold sheen is always a good thing! Enjoy!

I hope you're all having a delicious entry into 2017, and that it will be your most fun- and cookie-filled year yet! 

* 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.
