If you like the flavor of licorice, you'll love these crispy cookies. When our six children were young, I often made them for lunches or after-school snacks. Flattening the dough logs with a fork gives them a pretty look. Once they're baked, it's a breeze to cut them into strips.

"I have been making these cookies since they were first published! I made them for my grandfather for Christmas and some years later after losing the recipe I was thrilled to find it online! These are a Christmas tradition and so delicious!"

"My husband's favorite is black licorice, so I had to try these. Now I have to make them at least once a month. You simply MUST eat them with vanilla ice-cream - it's outrageously luscious!"
