GINGERSNAP COOKIES


Made by Benedictine sisters in the monastery's bakery using sugar and spice and all things nice! These sugar-coated cookies, with their chewy texture and spicy flavor, are perfect with coffee, tea, or a tall glass of milk. Like the pleasing tastes of ginger, cinnamon, and molasses, gingersnaps have been a favorite for centuries. Since they are said to have been invented by Benedictine monks, the sisters feel that they're part of their history too.

8-oz. bag

Ingredients: Flour, (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), white sugar, shortening, eggs, sorghum (sorghum, Invert and corn syrup), baking soda, ginger (ginger and sulfur dioxide), cinnamon, salt


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 amazingly good. I bought your assortment box of cookies to try them, and these gingersnaps are delicious. You can taste the spices in them. If you buy gingersnap cookies at the supermarket, they just don't taste like a ginger cookie. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you, Susan
