Explaining the wedding cookie tradition to out of town guests always leaves them with a curious look on their face. It is a "Pittsburgh" tradition and one you will enjoy!!! It brings the neighbor's, friend's, Grandma's, Aunt's & yes Uncle's together to bake and enjoy the variety and creativity of each others talent. Your out of town guests will be delighted & amazed at the table, all the cookies to enjoy and if your lucky, you will get to take some home for midnight snack or breakfast in the morning!
