 Delicious Cookies in Pittsburgh

This shop devoted solely to cookies has your typical chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and oatmeal raisin, but its unique flavors are what makes it truly special. The Heath chip cookie is perfect for those toffee lovers and those who adore the candy. Good L’Oven makes me think of old-fashioned homemade cookies with a delicious twist. Cookies are typically $8 for a half dozen, $15 for a whole dozen. 419 Lincoln Ave., Bellevue, PA 15202, more information HERE.

Available as part of their special occasion cookies (in case you have a wedding, baptism, or other celebration on the horizon), Bethel Bakery’s lady lox are not to be missed.

    1. Actually, Mini Lady Locks/Lox are actually called Clothespin cookies…because old recipes called for rolling puff pastry dough around greased clothespins to shape the cookies into cylinders, which are filled after baking. (The clothespins were the old wooden, one-piece ones.)

    I can guarantee that the best and the biggest cookies come from Good L’oven cookies. Always freshly baked. I have even gotten them while they are still warm from the oven.

  2. You may not know it (many Eat’n Park fanatics do not!)– but Eat’n Park Smiley Cookies are also available online at These cookies are a step above the ones you find in the store as they are available in a wide variety of shapes & sizes (the minis are my favorite) and they are nut free, kosher & available in bulk. They can also be shipped across the United States for any yinzer-abroad!
