Anise cookies - anesplatzchenFrom midgelet 4 years ago
How to make it
- Beat eggs until fluffy in mixer bowl at medium speed.
- Gradually beat in sugar.
- Continue beating 20 minutes more ( a must ).
- At low speed blend in flour, baking powder and salt.
- Add anise extract and beat only to blend.
- Drop by teaspoonsful on greased and floured baking sheets about 1/2 inch apart.
- Swirl each to make a circular form.
- You can bake these two ways.
- Either let stand on baking sheets for 8 hours at room temperature
- ( to dry out ) or bake immediately.
- Either way bake at 325 degrees about 10 minutes or until firm looking or set.
- cool on rack and store airtight.
- If made the first way to dry out these are a coffee dunker cookie or if baked immediately they are much softer and delicate.
- Either way they are delicious.
- I bake mine the second way.
- Yield about 5 dozen

Anise happens to be an appetite suppressant so these would actually be good before a meal!!! Thank you for the great and very useful recipe post!tuilelaith in Columbia loved it
Love these, my sister use to make them every year around the holidays. Her's were firm but yet a bit chewy, would you get this result by letting them sit or baking right away? You have my 5henrie in Savannah loved it
