Something smells good

Without a doubt the pizzelles made at the Mount are full of love and fun. Sister Marilyn Schauble, with the help of Sister Karen Oprenchok, whipped up the batter ahead of time so there was no delay in the annual baking adventure. The team of bakers included sisters, oblates and friends. They worked the irons and turned out dozens of pizzelles, a favorite Christmas cookie here in the monastery. “We had a couple of new helpers this year,” said Sister Marilyn. “Jackie, an oblate, and Terry, a visitor, joined right in and before long they were pressing beautiful pizzelles and having fun, too!”
