This is the only recipe on allrecipes I've come across with a complete 5-star rating - and it deserves it! The flavor and texture of these is delicious, and it's easy to make. I didn't have any anise seed or extract, so I substituted sambuca for the anise extract and also used 1/2 brandy/1/2 sambuca, instead of 100% brandy. The dough tastes and smells like Christmas. The recipe says to put two loafs on each cookie sheet, but if you do that, they're very small (certainly not the size illustrated). You might want to only make 2-3 loaves total.
