Frosted Anise Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./ batch + cooling
I have been making these cookies for the past two years and are now a permanent part of my Christmas cookie recipe collection. The anise flavor paired with the softness of this cookie is unlike any Christmas cookie I’ve ever had. I color the glaze light blue and sprinkle with clear fine sprinkles which makes them look like they are kissed with icy snow.
I am pretty disappointed in these cookies. I was waiting for the pop of Anise flavor and uh oh...nothing. Also they are kind of bland...not much flavor ...I would suggest added much more anise.
Absolutely love these cookies!
This is a delightful change from the usual crispy, loaded with something cookie.The cake like texture makes it special. The anise extract makes it great.For those who don't like anise flavoring, I think orange, lemon, or vanilla extract would beperfect, though I would make the icing for vanilla cookie flavored.I didn't make icing to frost the cookie. I made a simple glaze and spoon drizzled it over them, then sprinkled colored sugar on top.
Delicious, but best of all so simple.
What a delicious cookie. It's now going to be on my must-have Christmas cookie list.
