HERMIT COOKIES


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."
Ingredients: flour, butter, sugar, molasses, eggs, raisins, currants, walnuts, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, mace, nutmeg, allspice.


Mission Farm Bakery: Rutland, Vermont

Mission Farm Bakery is located on the 170 acre property of Church of Our Saviour in Killington, Vermont. The historic Episcopal church was built in 1817. In addition to the church, Mission Farm includes a guest and retreat house, a vicarage, and the bakery, staffed by Tim Owings.

Since 1997 Tim has lived a contemplative life in a log cabin on the church grounds; after a quarter-century as a professional baker he decided to use his energy and talents to produce cookies, cakes and fruit tarts whose sales benefit the ministries of the Church of Our Savior, including a women's shelter. Owings says, "It's satisfying to know I've helped in some small way." In addition to operating the bakery, he is also the church's organist and gardener.

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.
