This is an excellent recipe. I definitely will make this again and again.
I made these tonight and even though a bit time consuming, they taste wonderful. I am the only one who enjoys anise in my home, so I am sure these will last a while.
i love it
I made this cookie for Christmas cookie tray last year. They are crispy and have a wonderful anise flavor. Great to dunk in a cup of coffee. I will certainly make them again.
