Introduction

Light, crunchy cookies from my great grandmother, Rita Vistein. Excellent with coffee or a cold glass of milk. (These are one of Santa's favorites at our house) Light, crunchy cookies from my great grandmother, Rita Vistein. Excellent with coffee or a cold glass of milk.

Ingredients

    3 eggs
    2 cups powdered sugar
    1 drop anise oil or 1/2 tsp anise extract
    1 and 3/4 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    Anise seeds

Tips

If your cookies do not form caps, you have failed. You must redeem yourself by making another batch correctly with caps or be shunned by the Vistein family until you have redeemed yourself. Do you accept the challenge?


Directions

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add powdered sugar and beat together until smooth. Add ONE DROP of anise oil or 1/2 tsp of anise extract. Sift in flour and baking powder and beat until smooth. Batter should have a consistency slightly runnier than toothpaste and should be somewhat shiny. Place clumps of anise seeds(4-6 seeds) 2 inched apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Drop rounded teaspoons of batter onto each clump. Let sheets set out at least 8 hours or overnight in cool, dry place. Cookies should be dry-ish and slightly hard on top. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 12 minutes. Cookies should for caps.
