How to make it
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix butter (must be room temperature), mix with sugar, sour cream, eggs, anise flavoring.
- Mix these ingredients well.
- Add dry ingredients and mix well again.
- The dough will be sticky so put in refrigerator until it hardens so you can work with it. Make small balls and place on cookie sheet, un-greased cookie sheet.
- Spread far apart because they spread. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes; check the bottom after 10 minutes, if light brown they're done.
- Do not overcook. Cool before icing.
- Milk, Powdered sugar, Anise flavoring
- Ice cooled cookies and sprinkle the Nonpareil sprinkles.
- Now you are going to want to add icing to the cookies, so you are going to have to make the icing.
- HERE IS HOW YOU MAKE THE ICING:
- Get a medium sized bowl, one that is deep and narrow.
- Put in 3 cups of confectioner's sugar also called powdered sugar, and then add in 1/4 cup of milk and 1/2 tsp. pure anise extract.
- Mix this well. Making icing like this is a very forgiving recipe; you just add a little more milk and or a little more powdered sugar as you go to get the right consistency.
- When you add the milk, just add one drop at a time, a little goes a long way with the powdered sugar stuff.
- You want to get the consistency of the icing so as to drip off of a spoon but still be thick enough to not totally drip off of the cookie.
- You will have to experiment with this until you get it just right.
- TIP: You need to get the Nonpareils which are THINNER and have no chocolate bits
