"I would cut the amount of sugar by half, it was way too much...and if you don't like the taste of black licorice, leave the anise out."

"Although I do like the flavor of licorice, I would omit it from this recipe."

"I would leave out the anise extract. I am not that found of the black licorice flavor and apparently neither did the other 25 people at my breakfast last year. Then I would have to rate it again."
