Monastery Immaculate Conception: Ferdinand, Indiana

The Ferdinand Benedictines are one of the largest Benedictine communities of women in the United States. The religious community numbers 173 women, about 115 of whom currently live in Ferdinand at Monastery Immaculate Conception.

The sisters serve in the areas of education, parish work, health care, counseling, retreat and spirituality work, social services, and mission work. The Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand were founded in 1867 by four young Benedictine sisters who came from Covington, Kentucky, to teach Ferdinand's German settlers.

In the past 140 years, over 1,000 women have entered the Ferdinand Benedictine community. Their faith, spirit, and energy have led to the establishment of six independent monasteries—in Arkansas, North Dakota, California, Louisiana, Indiana, and Kentucky—and missions in Peru and Guatemala.

These cookies are absolutely delicious! They are very tasty, thanks to the spices, but not too sweet. And they are so compact that you cannot eat too many at once. So, the 2-pack is going to last for a while. :)

Love these. They are crispy, spicy, and perfect with a cup of hot tea on a cold winter's day. The fact that the recipe is based on a medieval one only adds to the allure, as far as I'm concerned! If you like a little history as well as bite with your cookies, these are the ones for you.

I ordered the Hildegard cookies because my book club was reading a book about her life. Having the cookies to share after our discussion added so much to our meeting. Everyone loved the cookies and commented on how tasty they were. They also arrived very promptly, and I was happy with the service provided.
