The Sisters of Saint Benedicts 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.
Hildegard cookies are made by the sisters and are part of the Monastery Baked Goods line. Packaged (8 oz.) in a cellophane bag.
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.
