Heritage Station in Huntington is the new home of Moonlight Cookies, a cookie shop which was once based at the Wild Ramp.

“Our customer base blew up,” Molly Paxton, co-owner of Moonlight Cookies, said.

Molly Paxton and her wife Anna, owners of Moonlight Cookies, said they chose to move their business to Heritage Station after their popularity soared at the Wild Ramp.

Moonlight Cookies’ new location is closer to St. Mary’s Medical Center and Cabell Huntington Hospital, both of which Moonlight Cookies delivers to on a regular basis, Molly Paxton said.

Moonlight Cookies joins several businesses at their new location including Taps, Brown Dog Yoga and several unique artisan shops.

“Everyone in Huntington takes care of each other,” Molly Paxton said. “The people here at Heritage Station are the reason we’re here.”

The shops at Heritage Station are well known as locally owned and operated, Molly Paxton said, and Moonlight Cookies is no different.

“We do it locally,” Molly Paxton said. “We use as many local ingredients in our cookies as possible.”

The menu at Moonlight Cookies includes chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, salted caramel cookies, turtle cookies, and chocolate potato chip cookies.

The salted caramel and turtle cookies are the most popular right now, Molly Paxton said.

Starting the week of Nov. 13, Moonlight Cookies will have a gluten free cookie option.

Moonlight Cookies also serves tea including chai tea, green tea and pumpkin spice, and other drinks such as hot chocolate.

“We make what we like,” Molly Paxton said. “There’s so many coffee places, but there’s no good tea shops where you can find good organic teas and get a whole pot of tea.”

Moonlight Cookies is also partnered with Sullivan’s Records, a record store in Charleston, as an official auxiliary store, meaning that Moonlight Cookies sells Sullivan’s Records in their shop.

“We’re also going to be selling used books for Homeward Bound Books,” Anna Paxton said.

Moonlight Cookies is open Tuesday to Thursday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m.

“I make pretty damn delicious cookies,” Molly Paxton said.
