From the Abbey of the Genesee

These flavorful, twice-baked treats from the Trappist monks of Genesee Abbey have a satisfying crunch that makes them perfect for dipping into a steaming cup of coffee or tea, or as an accompaniment to ice cream or a glass of wine. Lemon Ginger Biscotti are made with crystallized ginger, walnuts, and lemon.

Please note: Although we do our best to pack Biscotti carefully and sufficiently, they are delicate, and sometimes break in transit.

Abbey of the Genesee: Piffard, New York

The Abbey of the Genesee is a community of over 30 contemplative monks belonging to the world-wide Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O.) more commonly known as Trappists. The Abbey was founded in 1951 from the Abbey of Gethsemani, and is situated in the picturesque Genesee River Valley of Western New York. Within the monastic enclosure are some 1,200 acres of forest, ravines, rolling hills and a meandering creek.

The monks are dedicated to the worship of God in a hidden life within the monastery following the Rule of St. Benedict. The monastic community supports itself by the common work of baking bread and other products. In addition, the brothers help out on the farm and with cooking, laundry, cleaning, hospitality, formation of new members, and care of the sick and elderly of the community. The community is cloistered and has no outside ministry. Guests are received for quiet, private retreats at the retreat house.
