Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Summer Cookies

 

It's not yet Independence Day, but you'd never know it around here! People in my little suburb are already staking out spots along the parade route; bunting and American flags are cropping up on every porch; and premature fireworks are sounding even as I write this post.

Not only that, but we've had a rash of red, white, and blue cookies and other seasonal sets here on Cookie Connection!

This week's hot list* sizzles with the excitement of the coming holiday and screams summertime fun - be it seaside, on the golf course, or in the cool comfort of an ice cream shop! To all who celebrate, have a wonderful Fourth of July next week! And, to those who don't, please just kick back and enjoy this post!

Now, without further ado, I need to hustle to find my lawn chairs and claim my spot along the parade route. After all, I wouldn't want to miss the Fourth of July floats and fireworks!

Addendum: Lest you don't understand my sense of urgency, I leave you with this photo taken early Sunday morning. The chairs started cropping up two days ago, but now they're solidly lining both sides of the street, three days in advance of the festivities! We might be divided on issues here in the USA, but there's clearly no shortage of shared patriotism! Here's hoping for an Independence Day that further unites rather than divides.

* 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.

Thank you 

Now I have just noticed my cookies have also some red, blue and white!   I would like to see how Independence Day in the States.  

It is very exciting to see my cookies here along with beautiful summer cookies by wonderful cookie artists.    It is a torture to use oven during hot and humid season but those excellent cookies make me love my oven. 

Thank you for your "likes"
