Introducing our Moravian Spiced Butter Rum Cookie (aka “Blackbeard's Cookie”)

This is one of our more complex cookies. When tasting, neat notes of vanilla, honey, toffee, and a slight hint of spices are detected on the pallet. At the finish, flavors of  butter and rum start coming through with hints of brown sugar sweetness. The aftertastes are richly complex as orange peel, cocoa, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg help sweeten the holiday cheer.

A Taste of Moravian History

A Moravian cookie inspired by North Carolina legends and folklore. The ingredients that make up this legendary cookie first found their way into Colonial America in an unusual way. Edward Teach, a friend of the governor lived on the Pamlico Sound in the port town of Bath. Teach was better known as Blackbeard the pirate. When his ship, “Queen Ann’s Revenge”, would return to Bath from pirating ships, his booty would include many exotic things. Items such as sugar, spices, cocoa, vanilla, molasses, and barrels of rum are things that historians have recorded. Also, on the Pamlico Sound in an area known as The Outer Banks lies a town called Kill Devil Hills. According to the town, the name “Kill Devil Hills” was named after a rum so strong it could “Kill the Devil”.
