Saturday Spotlight: Top 10 Valentine's Day Cookies


Oooh, so exciting! My all-time fave cookie holiday is nearly here, so there's no time like the present to celebrate our top-trending Valentine's Day cookies with another valentine-themed Spotlight! (Our first one of 2019 posted two weeks ago, here.)

Naturally, hearts are well represented on this week's hot list*, but Practice Bakes Perfect challenge entries, roses, lace, and ruffles also feature prominently. Some cute-as-a-button animal-pals and love birds also factor in. No matter how wildly divergent their motifs, all of this week's honorees have one thing in common: they will make you fall head over heels! (I know, I know . . . I couldn't resist throwing in at least one Valentine's Day idiom. Please humor me! )

So onward . . . let's see who's topping this week's list, shall we?!

And there you have it. So, LOVE-ly, right?! Doesn't this week's hot list* just make your heart go pitter-patter?! Congrats again to all listed here, and, everyone, please enjoy the rest of the weekend.

* 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.
