I became a member of allrecipes just so that i could rate this wonderful recipe. Everything about this recipe is just right, but for religious purposes, we do not consume anything with alcohol, so i eliminated the anise extract and opted to grind 1 Tbs of anise seed instead (perhaps a minute difference in flavor intensity, but I'll never know.) Small imperfections in the shape bake right out as they rise a little, making it super easy to make a beautiful cookie! I brought these to a party and was told that they look too good to be homemade... I've made them twice this week and I have MULTIPLE requests to bake them for upcoming community events. The flavor and texture are perfect for coffee/tea time. Really, these cookies have improved my baking reputation. I can't thank you enough for posting this.
