WQED’s A Christmas Cookie Story Celebrates Local Traditions

PITTSBURGH -- For many western Pennsylvanians, a day of cookie baking is as celebratory as the holidays. WQED’s new local documentary A Christmas Cookie Storywill have multiple airings during the month: December 8 at 8pm; December 12 at 7:30pm; December 13 at 12:30am; and December 29 at 8pm.

Families gather in kitchens throughout the Pittsburgh region to mix dough, whip frostings and scatter sprinkles. It’s also a time to embrace ethnic traditions and remember loved ones who handed down creased and crumbling recipes. This holiday documentary features everything from colorful cutouts and Italian pizzelles to intricate gingerbread houses. It also shows how ordinary people become culinary artists during the holidays.
