Hildegard cookies are made by the Sisters of St. Benedict and packaged as a 4 ounce package, perfect for gift-giving! Need a lift? Just what the doctor ordered! St. Hildegard (Doctor of the Church) originally called this her “health cookie.” She said her blend of almonds, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and more has the ability to lighten a heavy heart. We just call them “happiness bombs.”
Their exclusive 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. (Wow!)
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.
