Mrs. Hanes' Cookies are a Winston-Salem area institution, especially when the Christmas season starts to roll around. Not only are their traditional spice molasses cookies superb, but they have taken this thin, delightful cut cookie to new heights with sugar cookie, lemon, black walnut, chocolate and other varieties over the years. Mrs. Hanes' is the "go-to" place for me when ordering a Christmas gift for out of town relatives who yearn for that touch of home during the holidays...and shipping is always reasonable and timely.
A visit to their great little shop and cookie making factory is a delighful hour or so. Sample the cookies, see them being baked, take home a pound or two. Enjoy...the locals do and keep on coming back!!
