I made these after making 4 other good kinds of cookies. Once my husband tasted these, the other cookies got barely touched til these were gone. You do have to grease the pan, and may have to adjust baking time just a bit, but these were sooooo good. I made a glaze from powdered sugar, milk and a few drops of anise extract and drizzled it on with a fork. They were delicious!
These are easy and taste great. Be sure to grease the pan. The batter more like a cake than cookie don't let that worry you. Wonderful. I made these also in a lemon version: omit anise; add 1 Tablespoon lemon extract and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest.
This cookie definitly beats Stella Doro Anise Cookie!! This cookie is crisp on the outside and very soft on the inside. A big hit at my family parties.
This is very simular to a recipe I made often as a teen, over 25 years ago. I loaned the cookbook that wan't returned and have been searching ever since. I am so excited to have this again. It's easy to make and everyone loved it. Have fun and enjoy !
Oh, yum! These are fantastic. My kids love them, my husband was curious about where I got them - he didn't think I could make something this good - actually, it looks and tastes elaborate, but is so easy to make. Be sure to grease your pan. The cutting and transfer to cookie sheet was easy. To toast them, I put the oven rack on a lower shelf then broiled on low for a few minutes. Similar to an anisette toast that I buy. Next time I will add a little more extract.
These were really easy to make and turned out just great! Just enough anise.
This is definitely a biscotti and not a cookie. It is a good base recipe for a soft sponge biscotti. I made this with brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon extract. I would put 2 tsp of extract next time for a more definite lemon taste. I glazed the top added sprinkles for more sweetness and a festive look in the photo. Make a nice big batch.
a very easy biscotti with wonderful flavor...will
use from now on for my biscotti...might try some orange and lemon zest
