Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Patriotic Cookies


Seeing as it's the Fourth of July, I thought it only appropriate to feature the ten top-trending patriotic cookies on the site this week. Naturally, there's lots of red, white, and blue depicted in our hot list* below . . . But, because our "Patriotic" clip set includes cookies that highlight the traditions and holidays of all countries, we're honoring some non-US gems as well.

Enjoy, and Happy Independence Day to all who celebrate!

And that's all she wrote - time now to go take in some fireworks!  Next week, we'll be back with a longer, more robust Spotlight featuring the honorees in our Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #40 Recap. Stay tuned, and stay safe!

(Reminder: Challenge #40 closes tomorrow, Sunday, July 5 at 5 pm central, so don't delay in submitting your entry! A $100 gift certificate to Country Kitchen SweetArt is at stake! Info here.)

* 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.

Oh wow!  What a wonderful idea to salute ALL countries (after all, the US is a country of immigrants!).  It's a honor to be included.  The weekend started with Hamilton and ended with this - it's been a fabulous time indeed!!

OMG! Thank you so much! I'm honored that my cookie was picked for the cover. Congrats to all the creators of the beautiful cookies in the group, and thanks for the badge! 😄

Such a nicely composed set! It was hard to resist!
