Product Description


From Mission Farm Bakery

These soft, rich, square spice cakes are a New England tradition. Some say that they are named for the brown sackcloth worn by hermits. And who better to honor this tradition than Mission Farm's own resident baker and musician, Tim Owings? After all, he lives as a solitary in a log cabin in rural Vermont, where the retreat center is located. He chose ingredients and a recipe which are as good and simple as the name of the cookie implies. Molasses, raisins, currants, walnuts and a blend of spices which includes cloves, nutmeg and allspice give them an irresistible flavor. Each package is gift-wrapped and contains 12 "hermits."

  • An old favorite

  • My 91 year old uncle said he hadn't had hermits since his mother made them many years ago. He liked them very much. Will order again.
