Excellent, authentic flavor. If you don't care for anise, leave it out, as suggested, but we do, and I made the recipe exactly as written, including walnuts. They were delicious. The appearance is particularly pleasing, with a golden, shiny top due to the egg wash. The directions state that each unbaked loaf should be 3/4 of an inch high. If you, like I did, made them slightly taller, it will take longer during the first baking to get the loaf to the state in which it is not moist in the middle. Mine took about 25 minutes. Next time, I will be even more careful to replicate the exact dimensions called for by the recipe. I formed the unbaked loaves on a piece of baking parchment for easy handling. This is an excellent recipe and I will make these again.
