The cookie table seems to be a Pittsburgh tradition. I understand that there are some unwritten rules about a cookie table - one of them being that you never ever put chocolate chip cookies on the table. Can anyone tell me of any other rules???? Can you buy the cookies? Do they have to be baked by relatives? Are they baked by the bride's family or the grooms? Are there cookies that absolutely must be included? Can wedding guests take them home? In boxes or in their handbags???Is a cookie table used only for wedding receptions? Are there any funny stories about what can happen with a cookie table?
