San Nicolas cookies are soft and delicious. But theyre much more than a yummy treat to the people of the Philippines. These cookiesnamed after an Italian saintare said to possess healing powers. Chef and food historian Atching Lillian Borromeo makes them using a recipe and intricate wooden moulds handed down by her ancestors. The main ingredient? Egg yolk. Well let Borromeo tell you the reason why.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
