I have used this recipe for years and it is one of our very favorites. Don't forget to crush the anise seed for lots more flavor.
I made these and sorry to say, will never make again! They were hard as a rock, I will go back to my other recipe, sorry!
Great and easy recipe. It was everyones favorite at Christmas. The only thing I did differently was add 1 tsp. anise extract because we like a little more of the anise flavor. Besides that it was a perfect anise toast recipe!
Simple, easy and tasty! I substituted anise extract for anise seed, and these little toasts/cookies were fabulous with tea!
This is a wonderful, quick and affordable recipe. I added these to my Christmas cookie tray this year. Be careful not to overbake on the second baking. They brown fast.
Have been looking for this recipe for yrs. It's super easy and delicious!! The only thing i changed on the 2nd batch was I used anise extract.Gives more flavor......
This is an excellent recipe. I'm currently on my 3rd batch :) It's easy to make with only a few ingredients, and it reminds me of the toast my Gram used to make. My first batch I only had one egg, so I used applesauce and baking powder as a replacement, and they tasted good but weren't as crispy as the second batch I made as written. Also, you can use a tsp of anise extract in place of the anise seed. It gives a sharper flavor, but I prefer mine with more anise. The batch in the oven now uses 3/4 of the called for amount of sugar and 1/4 molasses to try to achieve a warmer flavor. The batter tasted good, so we'll see how it goes. All in all, this is a great an simple recipe that's easy to experiment with. Thanks.
These were really tasty if you like anise flavoring. I made mine a bit more healthy and subbed 1/2 c wheat flour, 1/4 egg beaters for one egg and did 1/3 c splenda. Since they were toasted at the end I thought they still had a really nice texture and flavor. Thanks!
