Recipe Tips

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.

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 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.
