I really like these cookies. They are a dry cookie, but not all cookies are meant to be moist or chewy. You can tell by the instructions that these are meant to be dry (by needing to knead the dough). I did not have a hard time with the dough, but kneading is very necessary. They have a very mild anise flavor which compliments the cinnamon sugar coating quite well. I could not taste the anise very well when the cookies were right out of the oven, but after cooling and spending an hour or so in the freezer (at which point i was sneaking some), the flavor was quite good. I'm not sure if they just need to be cool to eat, or if that time in the freezer did the trick, but if you're thinking about eating these right out of the oven, just make snickerdoodles. These seem like they would be great with coffee, but I didn't have a chance to try that.
