On my hotel desk in Jackson, Ms...

delicious, delectable half-moon cookies just like I remember them!
The lovely librarian, Jeannie Chun, read about my fondness for them and saw the recipe and made them for me! So yummy and such a sweet welcome to Mississippi. Thanks so much, Jeannie!

Are they chocolate? I love chocolate :P

These look wonderful. They remind me of the black and white cookies they sell here in NY, only they look more appealing because they look like the cookie part is chocolate - my favorite.

Yes, these were chocolate and SOOO delicious. Nothing beats a home-made half-moon!

My dad grew up in Utica (the 40s, 50s, and 60s) and loved Hemstrought's 1/2 moon cookies. My uncle used to go back to New Hartford to visit his family so he would bring us boxes of the cookies. One year my husband and I braved a snowstorm to get my dad some on the way home from Thanksgiving. To say my family loves these cookies would be an understatement. I was sad to hear Hemstrought's closed, but I understand there is a new bakery in New Hartford called Gingerbread that is still making them.
