On the feast of Saint Hildegard, it seems most suiting to eat Hildegard cookies! This is her own recipe, one she instructed her own nuns to eat. Here are her serving recommendations:
1. She encourages adults to eat about five cookies a day.
2. And children, three. This was happy news for my 15 month old.
12 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
4 egg yolks
2.5 cups spelt flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
The recipe is rather easy, and you can find it here: https://healthyhildegard.com/hildegard-spelt-cookies/
Saint Hildegard of Bingen, pray for us!
