Ingredients

1 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup
sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 1/2 teaspoons
anise extract
1/2 teaspoon
vanilla
2 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon

Decorator sugars

Directions

  1. Combine butter, sugar, egg, anise extract and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten to 1/2 inch. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F. 
  4. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 1 1/2- to 2-inch star cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorator sugars; gently press into cookies. Bake 5-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
