Top o' the evening to you! It's your lucky night, because our "Top 10" hot list* is a veritable pot of gold, loaded to the brim with delicious St. Patrick's Day cookie ideas. (Sorry, I just couldn't pass up the obvious St. Patty's Day metaphors! )
While this list may be too late to influence your 2018 St. Patrick's Day baking (my bad; it's been a super busy few weeks of cookie class and show prep), it's definitely worth filing away for next year's inspiration, as you'll soon see.
Enjoy, and please raise a glass of green beer to toast this week's honorees!

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.
