Total Time


1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 tablespoon anise seed, crushed

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon anise extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups slivered almonds, chopped

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg (white only), beaten

1/4 cup coarse grain sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1 cup sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, anise seed, vanilla and anise flavoring; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in almonds.

  3. STEP 3

    Divide dough in half; shape each half into 11-inch log. Place 4 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet. Flatten each log to 2-inch width. Brush tops with egg white. Sprinkle with coarse grain sugar. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool 15 minutes on cookie sheet.

  4. STEP 4

    Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

  5. STEP 5

    Carefully place logs onto cutting surface. Cut into 1/2-inch diagonal slices with serrated knife. Place, cut-side down, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Return to oven. Bake 9 minutes; turn slices. Continue baking 8-10 minutes or until dry and crisp.

Tip #1

Anise seed and anise extract can be purchased in the baking aisle of your supermarket. Extracts provide a concentrated flavor without adding volume or changing consistency. Store extracts in a cool, dark place.
