If art were a cookie, it would be the springerle. It takes a whole team and two days to make these intricate German cookies. Don't let the elegant images food you; this dense cookie is packed with the intense flavor and aroma of anise. Too beautiful to eat? Just try to resist them!

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.
