Anise Cookies

This recipe has been in a folder for ten years. I have now made it twice. I
Like anise but many do not care for it. The recipe has a name on it. I also baked Mrs Scarano’s strip cookies. Twice. Don’t like to double recipes. Taking the split second cookies out now raspberry Jam apricot preserves and Fig jam filled.
From the phone. I hope it works

    • Thanks Carla. Saw your post on my phone and am going to read the rest of your good news on the computer. Congrats. I’ll be over to comment on your blog soon.
      Not having an easy time uploading photos from phone. I think if you hit the blue little square with the question mark, the recipe will show itself.

  2. When I was a child, the anise cookies were for the adults. It was a small price to pay being we could lay claim to all others. It was a milestone, of sorts, when we were old enough to have one of the anise biscotti without so much as eyebrow being raised.

    • These are little disc shaped. I should try the biscotti. I like your story about the anise being reserved for the grownups, John,
      The baking is finished and it will be interesting to see what is the most popular.

  6. Ritchey will love you for this! He always talks about the anise cookies his mom made – and I’ve been really hesitant to go up against that memory! But these sound lovely! I will make them as soon as I get home – and let you know what he says!

    That cookie table will look so, so tempting! Just getting over pneumonia; so being there on Saturday never was in my cards.

  11. I also don’t like to double-up on recipes… there’s too much new-and-good stuff in the world to make the same things over and over again… 🙂
