I think the family typically makes all of the cookies.  however, if you are looking for a great bakery, try Bethel Bakery.

I’ve heard good things about Bethel Bakery and Oakmont Bakery. Everything I’ve had from Prantl’s has been awesome too!

Also, this may seem strange, but Giant Eagle’s bakery is pretty good! Especially the Market District ones — they have some fancy stuff along with the standards. They might be a bit cheaper than the bakeries too.

There’s also a lot of ladies that do great baking out of their homes. You may just have to ask around to find them. I used to work with a guy whose wife did this — her cookies were delicious! I can get you her contact information if you wanted it.

Prantl’s has wonderful cookies, so does Paddy Cakes in Bloomfield… And if you know where the north versailles flea market is, one of the bakers that use to work at Guentert’s still makes the old recipes (thumb print cookies, pacman cookies, chocolate chip cookies, sunshine cake etc.).  I forget the bakery name (they are located in east pgh) but when you walk in the main entrance of the indoor park of the flea, they are on the right hand side and the sweetest little old ladies work his counter.

Aww.. I wish this was a tradition in our area…  I would love a table of delicious cookies.  Alas, our venue has a “no outside food” policy and cookies aren’t an option.

My fiance’s family is Greek and from Pittsburgh. I thought it was a Greek thing but am learning it’s more of a Pittsgurgh thing now. I’m very happy that your area’s traditions are coming with me to FL ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh forgot to be helpful before posting: maybe try Costco? I’ve had some great sweets at a friends’ house that was surprisingly from there and may be a good route for those huge table speads I’ve seen photos of!

Bethel Bakery is AWESOME for cookies, they are sooo good!  I ordered some for our cookie table and for our rehearsal dinner.

I also ordered Eat N Park smiley cookies, since you can get them in any color, and they are so Pittsburgh.  Also ordered a ton from Giant Eagle, they actually make pretty decent cookies!
