"I didn't have any anise extract so I used vanilla and added anise seed. Everybody loves them so I will make them the same way next time."

"I don't like anise, so i substituted with almond extract instead. I found it a little strong in flavour so may try 1/4 tsp instead of half next time. Over all still a good recipe, and the kids enjoyed them as well."
