I recall making these cookies when I'd seen them featured in Taste of Home. I baked 10 minutes. I found this recipe to be very good! delowenstein

The cookies have a nice, fluffy texture -- almost like little cakes. The anise flavor is very, very subtle. Next time I make them I will add more anise seed because I prefer a stronger flavor.

I used butter for shortening. They were yummy with not too strong of an anise flavor.
