Pittsburgh Wedding Cookie Table

NEW Custom Wedding Cookies– Perfect for a Cookie Table!

The wedding cookie table tradition is a phenomena deeply ingrained within the Pittsburgh wedding culture. Various historical sources state that the origin of the cookie table varies. Some sources believe that it originated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, while others argue soulfully that it all began in Youngstown, Ohio.

What is known is that the cookie table became popular in the industrial era and Great Depression– seen as a response to growing financial uncertainty and an avenue for the rise in cultural expression and growing family ties.

Currently the cookie table tradition is thriving in Pittsburgh & Youngstown but is also found at various weddings, graduations, and other celebrations across: New York, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey.

For those of you who have never experienced a cookie table, expect to find the more common types of wedding cookies: peanut butter blossoms, buckeyes, lady locks, fruit horns and nut caps; arranged daintily upon a buffet sized table. The more “personal”  cookies like Nonna-made pizzelles, Babcia’s sweet kolackis, or Yia Yia’s ever-sought-after baklava will be coveted and may only be available in a limited supply– so take it from a cookie professional… enjoy them FAST!

So… BIG question… how many cookies at a cookie table is too many? That is totally up to you– the beauty of the cookie table! Wedding Cookie Tables average >5 cookies per attendee. For a party of 200 people you should expect to see near 80 dozen cookies!  If one is convinced after such statistic that they will have cookies left over… introducing… the second greatest phenomena next to cookie table culture… the cookie table attendee’s ”take-home” box! Best party favor idea ever, right?
