From Monastery Immaculate
Conception, Ferdinand, Indiana
SIMPLY LEMON COOKIES


Made by Benedictine sisters in the monastery's bakery. With a crisp exterior and a chewy center, their intense lemon flavor is derived chiefly from the zest and juice of fresh lemons. The finely granulated sugar that coats the outside of the cookies makes them neither too tart nor too sweet. It's difficult to eat just one of these refreshing and comforting cookies.

8-oz. bag



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.

I ordered a bag of the lemon cookies a month or so ago and am working my way through them. I love them. The crunchy part of them I love on cookies over the softer gooey type. My thanks to the sisters or brothers whom made these... keep it up!
