Enjoy Newman`s Own Organics Ginger Hermits (6×9 Oz). ?Our recipe, which is based on one we used to make at home, is filled with our delicious organic raisins and sweetened with organic molasses. These spicy, chewy cookies are said to have originated in Colonial New England. One theory is that hermits were named for their long keeping qualities?better when hidden away like a hermit for several days. I doubt if these will last long enough to hide.?
