Owner description: We make Cookies. But at our Bakery we don’t manufacture cookies, we create them. We make about 100,000 lbs. of Moravian Cookies a year and every cookie is made by hand using a rolling pen & a cookie cutter. There are about 100 cookies in a lb., so that is ten million cookies cut out one by one using only a cookie cutter. We are a family business comprised of 7th, 8th & 9th generation Moravians & our recipe is a secret family recipe that has been handed down for generations. I don’t think there is another company in the world like my bakery. Not only are our cookies made in North Carolina, we are made by hand in North Carolina. Come before 2:30 PM M-F to watch our cookies being made at our special viewing window and enjoy tasty samples of our 6 different flavors. Tours are given but you must call to scheduled in advance. There is a $4.00 charge per person

“Great Cookies, Superb Gift Mailing Service & Neat to Visit!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

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!!

“Still made by hand.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

See how these paper-thin cookies are still made by hand in the traditional Moravian manner. Windows let you view into the production area. Quite fascinating and delicious. Small shop.

“Morvians Make The Best Cookies”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Hanes cookie factory makes cookies year round. And are always really busy during the holidays because their cookies are a wonderful tastey treat for gifts or for your own snacking. During the Christmas holidays it's best to stock up early because they do eventually run out of certian popular flavors!
