How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

    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.
