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.

Monastery Immaculate Conception: Ferdinand, Indiana

The Ferdinand Benedictines are one of the largest Benedictine communities of women in the United States -- over 100 members strong and thriving.

Monastery Immaculate Conception was founded in 1867 by four young Benedictine sisters who came to Ferdinand to teach the children of area settlers. More than 1,000 women have entered the community over the last 150+ years. They've expanded their ministries beyond education and beyond Ferdinand. Today, they serve as teachers, social workers, parish ministers, counselors, nurses, attorneys, youth ministers, administrators, entrepreneurs, activists, chaplains, librarians and more.

The history of Monastery Baked Goods is rooted in a love of baking among the sisters. In support of Christkindlmarkt, an annual German festival held in Ferdinand, the sisters started making and selling Springerle, a traditional German cookie. Today they produce a variety of cookies and other baked goods whose sales help to support their ministries.
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

I purchased a bag of the Gingersnap cookies at a local fair; they were the BEST I'd ever had ! Crisp, but not too hard, and the warmest flavor... I had to order 2 more bags! They are great on their own, but also excellent crumbled on vanilla ice cream...

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
