This was featured on unsolved mysteries and is the topic of books, and a movie called a place in the sun.In the early 1900s Grace Brown was drowned by her fiance, Chester Gilette. Reports say that they have tried to pull the string on a light and they feel a cold hand, see her drowning, or see apparitions at the lake..Where the Black & Whites have a thin shortbread-like cookie, Half-Moons have a pillowy, cakey devil’s food base.Black & Whites are glazed, Half-Moons are slathered with vanilla buttercream of one-half of the top and chocolate buttercream on the other, resulting in the half-moon appearance.If you need to cancel you may be eligible for a refund or event rain check, based on our cancellation policy, provided you contact us before the event day.
Hemstrought’s Bakery is now closed, but they continue to churn out Half Moon cookies daily at the bakery plant located 900 Oswego Street in Utica, NY for mail order.
The original recipe makes 2400 cookies, but trust me you will have your hands full with the 30 this recipe has been scaled down to make. I’ve gotten a couple recipes, which were pretty good, but can’t wait to try this one. The place to get good Half Moon cookies is in Cortland at the Grant Bakery . Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for finally clarifying what Upstate New York people have known all along… My sister and I have even tried to bake those cookies and donuts, but nothing has compared. If anyone from the Lynch family ever reads this, and if you have the recipes from that bakery, I know there are those of us out here who would GLADLY pay you for those treats!!!! One person in Publix here in Central Florida knew what I was talking about when I ordered two Half Moon Cookies. Don’t taste as good down here and Florida, that’s a lousy name for a great cookie. I am not sure, I haven’t made vanilla half-moons yet.
Full disclosure: The Cookie recipe is the original from Hemstrought Bakery, according to Saveur, the very recipe that was tacked to the wall of the bakery for 80 years. After reading a bunch of online reviews, mostly HERE, and realizing I was out of cooking chocolate I decided to go with a straight chocolate buttercream for the chocolate side. I’m also trying to find a half moon cookie pan that has the shape of cookie…like 4 or 6 in a sheet. You use to be able to have them delivered to you in a six pack for $.25 a cookie. that Half-Moon Cookies are made using a Devil’s Food CHOCOLATE cookie-base… if it’s not CHOCOLATE, then it’s NOT a real Half-Moon Cookie! I remember Sundays were walking over to the Victory market to buy the Sunday paper. Ate many of these cookies when I lived in the Utica area. But it seems there is a hint of lemon in every vanilla half-moon I have ever bought.
It is a handwritten recipe still tacked to the wall of the bakery and produces 2400 cookies. My email is…I have the recipe for home dairy half moon cookies and its so different then yours we never used butter in them we used marginine and we used softened bakers chocolate in both cookies and frosting they were so good I make them at holidays If I wanted to try making “two bite” sized cookies (for a bake sale during a 15 minute play intermission) what would you suggest I go with? I wandered into the cafeteria and the mist beautiful half moon was there at the register. If they can’t get them from Light’s, then they grab some from Wegmans. it feels like i need that size when ever my kids have a school gathering lol.
But if you want to try your hand at making your own Half-Moon Cookies on a slightly smaller scale, Saveur magazine published the recipe in 2000, scaled down to a more manageable 30 cookies for the home cook. I noticed it was chocolate so quickly grabbed the last one. Here in MA you can’t get a chocolate based black and white. Sometimes we get them from Wegmans or the Store in Dryden n.y. i know some recipies dont multiply well if certain alterations are not done.
