Our Story

100 Year Celebration!

In 1920, Harry B. Hemstrought crafted his famous half-moon recipe in what began as a small bakery on Genesee St. in Utica, New York, Hemstrought's highly sought-after secret recipe has been passed down by our bakers for generations.  Each half-moon is crafted with the perfect mix of smooth chocolate fudge and buttercream frosting atop a soft ‘cake-like’ cookie bottom for a unique texture with an irresistible taste.

One hundred years later, all cookies are baked from scratch every morning with all-natural ingredients. Who else bakes from scratch?

Our half-moons are hand-frosted with a luscious chocolate fudge and vanilla buttercream frosting -- a recipe that has not changed since the bakery's founding 100 years ago. Be sure to specify if you want Chocolate “bottoms” or Vanilla “bottoms”!
