Using a centuries-old recipe, we combine full flavor vanilla, finely milled wheat flour and whole eggs to create these uniquely thin and flavorful cookies.
Moravian cookies back to the 18th century, when settlers from the European
region of Moravia journeyed to the colony of North Carolina and founded the
town of Salem in 1766. They created these thin cookies as a way to preserve and
enjoy rare, treasured ingredients like molasses, allspice and ginger. Because of the
precious ingredients and the time required to roll the dough so thin, the cookies
were traditionally made only during the holidays.
