Introducing our Moravian Lemon Cookie (7oz)

Our signature lemon cookie, thin, crisp, and refreshing. Notice the vibrant citron flavor with hints of freshly cut lemons. Expertly blended with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla giving unusual depth and complexity with a touch of lemon zest for a lively tingle. The aromatic flavor is sensuous with buttery notes that smooth out the finish. A premier treat for any occasion.

Baking has been our family’s pride, passion and way of life since 1925.

We love experimenting with flavors, and lemon is a classic customer favorite.

Mom’s always know best, and this is our Mama’s top choice! She says they are “refreshing any time of the year”!

Quality always comes first. It is the Wilkerson Way. We hand-bake these beauties using lemon zest and cold-pressed lemon oil.

Baking is an art, every master baker must be equal parts scientist and magician.

Just like our great-grandfather, we bake to preserve an early American tradition of making cookies with delicate mastery and protected craftsmanship.

A Taste of Moravian History

The first lemons are believed to have evolved on the lower slopes of the Himalayan Mountains in eastern India. Lemons originated from a cross between the most ancient citrus called citron and sour orange. In early Colonial American recipes, the use of local fruits like apples, blueberries, grapes, and peaches were popular, but the most revered and rarely available were tropical fruits. Lemons came mostly from the Caribbean with transportation making them extraordinarily expensive. Families put a lot of effort into preserving the lemons so their flavor could be enjoyed throughout the year. Lemons became a status of wealth and prestige and were usually only served to special guests or for the holiday season.
