Delicious Wedding Cookie Recipes for Creating Bite-Sized Treats for the Big Day
Macarons, madeleines, meltaways, and more to make for your celebration.
Serve up a cake, and cookies, too! After all, they are just as scrumptious, can look equally as striking, are easy to bake ahead of time, and—the big bonus—can be nibbled in between trips from the dessert table to the dance floor. Here, some of our favorite ideas.
Shortbread Rhubarb Sandwich Cookies
Everyone knows you and your groom are cut out for each other; these monogrammed shortbread cookies, with a sweet-tart rhubarb filling, just drive home the point.
Vanilla Meringue Morsels
The dough for these orange-molasses cookies is firm, making it ideal to cut out in shapes like these silhouettes of the bride and groom. Serve them with coffee at the end of dinner, or wrap them up as favors for guests to take home and enjoy.

A dusting of confectioners' sugar dresses up these cookies that offer traces of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and rum to warm up any celebration.
