  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until they are light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat for about 3 minutes. Stir in the oil and anise extract. Fold in the dry ingredients until well blended. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  3. When the pan cools slightly, cut the cookie down the middle, lengthwise. Cut each half into 1/2 inch slices. Place slices onto a cookie sheet and return to the oven long enough to brown on each side, like toast. Store in a tightly covered container.

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...

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 t...

a very easy biscotti with wonderful flavor...will use from now on for my biscotti...might try some orange and lemon zest

These were beyond expectations and were not only easy to make, they were so delicious. I have been having a hankering for the anisette sponge I used to get many years ago when I lived in New Yo...
