At the Benedictine Monastery of St. Margarita in Pag for centuries is produced Baškotin certainly the oldest sweets - kind of hard milk bread, like toast. It is believed that the Benedictine nuns were cultivated production of Baškotin for more than 300 years. Nuns did their best to protect their hard roll "baškotin" that is now labeled as "Originally Croatian" and "Croatian Island Product".
Local people cherish baškotin more than any other rolls or cakes. In the old days, when people were more socialized, guests are greeted with baškotin and white coffee, and no family celebration was imaginable without baškotin.
