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.

We are now celebrating the 100th anniversary of Hemstrought's Bakery with the original half-moon cookies and some new products too, including hand-dipped and decorated butter cookies and our hand-kneaded, crusty European style breads to complement Artisanal's exquisite cheeses.
