The cookies are such a part of our culture that was brought over with the previous generations.  I had never seen a bride have a candy table before, but on the other hand, I had never seen a bride without a COOKIE table.  My cousin’s biggest complaints was at her own wedding, by the time she and her groom got an opportunity to hit the cookie table, they were all gone.  They had to settle for the cake.  I hope you like the recipes that follow.
