WOW!!!!! WOW!!!!WOW!!! This recipe is Awsome.. The only thing that I did different was to Add 1 oz. of the Anise Extract. We like our cookies a little stronger flavor... My husband was eating them as fast as I could get them off the cookie sheet.. I frosted them with White Frosting from the can that I bought from the store and flavored it a little with the anise oil... They were so good.. This is a keeper... I will be making these all the time.. They turn out so pretty.. They are going to look nice on a cookie try.. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us.. It's wonderful. I can't wait to make a cup of tea and have cookie's..

I thought the anise flavoring wasn't strong enough, and the cookie wasn't sweet enough for me. I would definitely add more anise favoring or seeds. I did one pan full by rolling in raw sugar and that turned out really good. Another review said she did an anise glaze and I will do that also.

I had been baking an anise cookie recipe for years when this year (2 batches) there was a terrible after taste. I found Louise's recipe quick, easy and delicious! This will be replacing my old recipe!

We made these tonight & liked how quick & easy they were. We are going to try them with different flavorings such as almond, rum, etc. Also love the texture, as well.

These came out good, though the 8-10 minute baking time was not long enough. (Maybe I made the cookies too big?) Also, the # of eggs seemed to make them heavier than other, similar cookies. I was looking for a whiter, lighter cookie. That said, my family liked them ...

I wanted a soft anise cookie and this recipe filled the bill! My family loves them and I will add this recipe to my "must bake" list ever Christmas! I frost them with an anise frosting.
