Pittsburgh police find mystery cookie gifter

Zach Brendza

Pittsburgh police have found the source of an unexpected delicious delivery.

“The Cookie Angel, as we have come to call her, has identified herself,” Pittsburgh Bureau of Police posted to their Facebook page Wednesday.

The police on Tuesday posted to Facebook that “a kind woman delivered a significant amount of cookies to the front desk of Police Headquarters.”

Officers were on the phones and unable to thank her properly before she left, according to the post.

The story of the cookie whodunnit goes like this: the woman now lives out of state but was back in town for a wedding. The Cookie Angel’s mother was baking for the wedding’s cookie table and made an extra massive batch for the police, Pittsburgh police explained in their post.

The woman wanted to remain anonymous, police said.

Comments on Pittsburgh police’s Facebook post have made the gesture that much more special.

Linda Palla-Piccirillo wrote the woman “probably doesn’t want to be found. Just a love and kindness in her heart. Enjoy the cookies.”

Joanne M. Brodeur Christopher commented that “some people restore my faith in humanity. Kindness is everything.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
