Hildegard Cookies

Hildegard Cookies

Our recipe for Hildegard cookies came from St. Hildegard herself, who recommended them for slowing the aging process, creating a cheerful countenance, lightening a heavy heart, and releasing intelligence.

A remarkable woman of the Middle Ages, Hildegard was a Benedictine abbess, musician, artist, writer, and adviser to bishops, popes, and kings. As a scientist and healer, she promoted natural medicine that integrated physical, psychological, and spiritual healing. She proposed principles for a balanced diet and explored the medicinal uses of plants, animals, and trees.
