Directions

  1. Combine flour and sugar in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender-or work with your hands - until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. Add anise oil (optional) small amount for it is very strong, to 1/2 cup of the milk and add to flour mixture. Gradually add more of the milk mixing until dough holds together.
  3. Pull off small portions of dough and roll between palms of the hands into a roll about finger size. Roll in sesame seeds. Seeds stick better if put in sugared water and taken out and put on a clean lintless cloth. Roll on cloth with seeds, then flatten out too about 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2 inch strips, place on ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove, cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

My husband and I drive an hour and a half to Brooklyn for these cookie, and I like this recipe better. The hint of anise is nice. THANKS! HINT!!! I went thru about 6 oz. of sesame seeds to roll. Make sure you have about a half a pound ready. I also used my bread machine to mix the dough. It's much easier.

I really liked this cookie - takes a little time to make since there are so many of them. Brought them into the office and got rave reviews. Not a kid's type of cookie more of an adult taste. Great with coffee or tea.

Not as good as they should have been...definitely need to add 1/2 tsp of Anise oil and 1 tsp of vanilla
