The Cookie Table
The Cookie Table is an old tradition that I only recently discovered. People in Pittsburgh, PA and Youngstown, OH have been hosting Cookie Tables at weddings for years, so my question to you is why hasn't this trend spread across the country? Please leave a comment if you've been to a wedding with a Cookie Table!
I had my first experience with the Cookie Table this past weekend at my cousin's wedding. Immediately upon arriving at the reception I headed to the table to hand in my cookies and help set up. It was a lot of fun opening box after box after box filled with all types of cookies, some I had never even seen before. I think it's safe to say that my sister-in-law and I became the official taste testers of the evening, so our two favorites were the mini burger cookies (pictured below) and the pistachio macaroon cookies from Mike's Pastry in Boston. I give this Cooke Table an A++!
I'm pretty sure the burger cookies were made by sandwiching a thin mint between two nilla wafers, dyed green shredded coconut as the lettuce, and colored frosting as the ketchup and mustard. Maybe whoever made these cookies can let me know if I'm correct.
How cute are these little guys!!
