Garrofetes del Papa Luna


They are dried cookies of the Baix Ebre region, light and empty inside, that solved the stomach problems of Pope Benet XIII, known like "Papa Luna". It is told that a doctor suggested the pontiff to ingest only a concentrate of flour, egg and sugar to alleviate the belly he suffered. It was a neighbour of Bitem (Tortosa) who found the formula to turn these three ingredients into the 'garrofetes'.
