For centuries the Benedictine Convent of St. Margaret produced a rusk called baškotin. Back in 1540, the nuns acquired their first oven, which they began using to bake various cakes, buns and the baškotin. They invested their efforts into safeguarding their product, which is today entitled to use the Croatian Creation and the Croatian Island Product labels. The people of Pag value the baškotin more than any other bakery product, and it is a favourite present of former island residents who now live elsewhere.
In the past, guests were traditionally welcomed with the baškotin and sweet white coffee. One could never imagine any family gathering or celebration without the baškotin. Today, the baškotin is considered an original gourmet souvenir from Pag.
