Purchases of Monastery Baked Goods products help support the mission and ministries of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand, Indiana.

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 springerles, a traditional German cookie. Following some suggestions from friends and community members, the sisters experimented and created the recipe for almerles, almond-flavored cookies that have the appearance and texture of the springerle.

Later, the sisters decided to make cookies in honor of St. Hildegard, a twelfth-century mystic. The cookies were so popular that they also were added to the bakery’s offerings. Due to the interest generated by the cookies, the full scale bakery was born.
