I didn't make these, but wanted to say thank you for reminding me of these cookies. My Grandma made these every for my dad who was not a fan of sweets. The finished cookie was less than 1/2 inch across and she always put a little tiny piece of walnut in the top. ??
Not a bad licorice flavour, but found the cookie to be too hard for our family that likes a softer cookie.
My entire family loves these cookies!! I tend to make them for all our parties because I get so many requests for them. So easy to make, the kids love to help. Thanks for a recipe we will make for years to come.
The texture of these cookies was like eating dry playdough. They also lacked flavor, even though I used freshly crushed aniseed. I won't be making these again!
It's been years since I've made cookies!! But, I'm going to locate my cookies sheets and make this one!!To BrytEyz or anyone else looking for Anise Seeds, you will find them at Penzey's Spices. They do ship. www.penzeys.com or call them at 1-800-741-7787.Happy Baking ~~ Kitzer
My family LOVES these cookies! The Anise flavor is such a nice addition to my Christmas Cookie assortment. I've never found anisseed, so I just use the extract. I love that the recipe makes such a large number of cookies so quickly and easily. The small size is perfect for such intense flavor. The TOH cookbook in which I found the recipe states that they're best when left to age for a couple of weeks, but my family prefers them fresh. If you do "age" them, they'll take on a much crunchier consistency.
