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

We happened upon this Cookie Factory and decided to stop in not knowing anything about the place. We were greeted by friendly staff who told us all about the cookies and gave us samples of each flavor. We left with several packages for us and for Christmas gifts. We like the Ginger ones the best!

It is a simple attraction but if you love cookies it is a place to go. You get to sample all the cookies and watch as they are being made. They also make great gifts ;)

Mrs. Hanes is very close to my home. The atmosphere is great, the smell is amazing plus there is a glass wall and you can watch the employees hand rolling and cutting the cookies. Did I mention they are delicious. I made the mistake years ago of buying tins of these cookies for out of state family members one year... More

I stopped in to get cookies for my mom for her birthday and was pleasantly surprised. You are not only able to see the bakers at work, the lady behind the counter is very friendly and will explain the process and answered all my questions. They even do field trips (sadly I live in NY so my students will not... More

I wish I could bottle the amazing, cookie-baking smell of the Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookie Factory and take it home with me! As soon as we walked in it greeted us along with the warm, friendly staff.

All the personnel were so very helpful and knowledgeable. We needed to purchase cookies to take home and cookies to ship. That was not a problem to them. They handled it very smoothly.

Watch the world famous Moravian cookies made. Lots of flavors availabld of this ultra thin cookie. GInger is the traditional variety. But you can get sugar, lemon, and even black walnut flavored cookies. You can order online or visit their store. They also sell Moravian Stars and some pottery of the area. Use your GPS to find the factory.

I've been buying Mrs. Hanes cookies for years and the quality has remained the same along with the wonderful, full flavor. You can order by mail or visit their factory. The Ginger and Black Walnut are my favorites, but all are very, very good. They are thin, light, and make a delightful snack by themselves or with coffee, tea, etc.... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. Customers like you are the reason we continue our hand-made tradition. It is not easy to make a cookie by hand in today's machine oriented world. That's why we get such satisfaction and encouragement when someone recognizes and appreciates the quality of our cookie. YOU make it all worthwhile. Thank you for... More

Make a reservation if you want to take a tour! Their website has a sentence about this under group tours, but even if it's two of you, call for a reservation. We used google maps to get there, and when we left it took us out a different way, so I'm thinking the directions on their website should be what... More
