At our monastery set amid the rolling hills of Southern Indiana, the unique taste and aroma of springerle cookies have long evoked the Christmas season. For years, dating back likely to the 19th century, our sisters have been baking these special treats imprinted with holiday images, as part of the German heritage that so many of us have shared. We are pleased to offer this taste of an Old World Christmas to you.

Best Springerle Cookies Review by John, Indianapolis
I have been purchasing these for several years, since being introduced to them at an Indiana Artisans exposition at the State Fairgrounds. They are my very favorite cookies. My mother made delicious springerle cookies when I was young, and these remind me of her. They will keep for a long time if stored in a sealed container in a cool part of your home.

Great Purchase Review by Lynne
I have not had Springerle cookies since my mom passed away. I purchased some for myself and had some sent to my brother. They were delivered quickly, wrapped in bubble wrap, and they are very good! The anise flavor is just right and they are a bit crunchy on the outside but soft and wonderful inside. I am so glad I found out about this Monastery gift shop. (Posted on 12/9/2016)
