A wafer-thin cookie with delightful flavor obtained from Benne seeds blended with maple & brown sugar.These thin crisp cookies capture the tart -but- sweet and pleasing crunch of this much- loved delicacy. Everything old is new again as we bring back our original Benne Wafer Tin. These are the classics that have stood the test of time and are sure to please generations to come!

 

In 1924, Ben T. Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford.

The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah.It was Byrd’s son, BT Byrd, Jr., who would later go by Cookie Byrd, who had the idea of packing these bite sized confections in tins, so that they would travel better. This idea, paired with his popularizing of the Benne Wafer and the Benne Seed, took the company to a new level. By making these delicious treats transportable, Byrd became a gourmet food company, able to ship cookies to other markets. Now you can get these great tasting cookies here on Hilton Head.
