Product Description

From Monastery Immaculate Conception, Ferdinand, Indiana
Traditional German
Christmas Cookies

For centuries, these cookies have been a Christmas tradition in Bavaria and Austria. After settling in America in the 19th century, Benedictine Sisters in Indiana preserved this craft, each year creating these hard-to-find cookies the Old World way. These anise-flavored cookies are made from a simple egg-and-flour dough, sweetened with sugar and honey. Using specially carved cookie molds, the Sisters press a variety of Christmas-inspired designs into the dough before baking. The result is a firm and tender cookie that is a perfect accompaniment to coffee, tea or your holiday egg nog. Each box contains one dozen cookies (about 2" long).

  • Springerle

  • As a child my German Grandmother made these cookies at Christmas. My husband created a memory I had lost by finding these cookies online from you. What a wonderful 65th birthday present.

  • a true delight

  • I placed 5 orders of Springeler cookies. Every recipient said they were the best they ever tasted. Other companies sent ones that were hard as a rock and tasted stale. Yours were soft and fresh, a true delight. I can't wait for next year when when place these orders again. Thank you.!

  • Reminds me of home

  • I have been looking for commercial Springerle cookies for years (sadly, I'm not the cook my mom was). Then I found these and...wow...just like my mom used to bake (almost, close enough). I ordered more to share with my brother. Thanks to the Sisters of St. Benedict!

  • Springerle & anise

  • The look like and the texture is like my Swiss grandmother used to make, but they have too much anise flavor in them; it's overpowering.

  • Memorys of days gone by

  • I saw these and they looked like what I ate many years ago that were made by my grandmother. What a treat! They were exactly the same taste and texture as hers. The only thing missing was the anise seeds. These cookies were the best memory I could have gotten this Christmas. Thank you

  • The best!

  • My Mom loves Springerle's and after the loss of a local baker, didn't know where to turn for the seasonal treat. I sent her a package from Monastery Greetings and she said they were the best Springerle's she'd ever had. She delighted in sharing with her friends.

  • Just like I remembered

  • This holiday I was feeling nostalgic for these cookies which are near impossible to make in a humid climate. I found them on-line, loved them and tried to order more. They were out. Next year I planned to order several Early in the season!
