Thank you, thank you!!! Perfect! These are EXACTLY the cookies my grandmother Angelina use to make for me and my sister at Easter. I asked my mother for it a few years ago but it was nowhere to be found. I used lemon extract instead of vanilla (still traditional) and I am sure the anise ones would be delicious too..maybe even orange. Yum. This recipe yielded exactly 52 cookies using a small tbsp scooper and the dough turns out the perfect consistency for shaping by hand - and it doesn't stick! I iced mine using 3 cups powdered sugar, 4tbsp milk, 2 tsp extract (I used lemon). The consistency looked like Elmer's white school glue and dried in less than an hour. These are so basic yet so delicious! Ignore the bad reviews! Finding this recipe made my day. :)
