Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookies

Our cookies are made from an old family recipe that has been handed down for generations. Each cookie is rolled and cut by hand, the same way it was made a century ago. Then flavor is literally rolled into the cookies. This is a costly method but the only way we can maintain the high quality and delightfully different taste. Our skilled workers take pride in their work.

Our business is a family endeavor. I am the seventh generation of Moravian cookie makers. My husband Travis and I have been followed in the business by our daughter, Mona Hanes Templin and our son, Mike Hanes. The ninth generation is awaiting on the sidelines in the form of our grandchildren.

Being a family business, our pride in our product is personal as is the concern and care we give each order. Because of this concern, quality service is maintained. Our first product was the Moravian Sugar Crisps Cookie. This old family recipe has been handed down for generations. Our customers say, “It is truly a cookie with a personality.”

We also make Moravian Ginger Crisps. This type of Ginger cookie has long been a local Christmas favorite. We have applied our experience learned in baking Sugar Crisps and have produced a spicy, paper thin, delicious cookie. 

Our goal in not to be the biggest, but to be the best cookie makers in the world.
