Saturday Spotlight: Top Ten Mothers' Day Cookies, Redux

Some daughters give chocolates to pay tribute to their moms. Others send pretty bouquets of flowers . . . And then there are those rare others, like this week's honorees, who take the time to craft something uniquely special - a cookie gift that merges the best of both of worlds by not only looking gorgeous, but also tasting great.


Perhaps there's still time to use one of this week's hot list* as inspiration for your own Mothers' Day cookie set? I'm sure any mom would appreciate the extra love and effort!




Congrats to this week's winners . . . and a special Happy Mothers' Day to my own mom, who taught me to decorate cookies so many moons ago. XOXO



That's me, on the right, looking un-glam in my night gown.

* 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.

I love it too, but mostly because it reveals so much about our various personalities, even at that early age. My sister, to this day, is the colorful and high-spirited one. In this pic, you can see that I'm already quite serious - and not completely satisfied with that cookie that I just decorated!
