These are my grandmother's absolute favorite cookies. She used to make them every year at Christmas, but as the years have passed, she is unable to bake like she used to. I began using this recipe about 4 years ago to carry on her tradition. I do make a few changes, white pepper instead of black, ground anise instead of extract, dark brown sugar, and sub one cup of all-purpose flour for cake flour. I let them 'age' for two weeks in an air-tight container. My grandmother absolutely loves them, along with everyone else in our family. Spicy and delicious, these always put me in the Christmas spirit!
Plus, your whole house smells wonderful while they're baking. :)
