Pittsburgh has many unique traditions, including cookies on cookies on cookies at weddings! AHHHHHH yeah!

Dessert is my second favorite thing at a wedding ( behind an open bar of course) and it wouldn’t be a “Pittsburgh” wedding without homemade cookies. The New York Times spotlighted this special tradition, “In Pittsburgh, It’s I Do, Then ‘Pass the Cookies’!

Nice video on a Pittsburgh wedding here too!

Gotta love this western PA tradition! Sure candy buffets and cake are great but cookies and dessert is where it’s at n’at!!! Start cooking now Mom! She makes the best pizzelles. Good thing I have a ton of aunts.
