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 salt

Decorator sugars

How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F. 

  4. STEP 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.
