"These were so yummy! They are extremely delicate cookies. So much so that I had to add another egg to keep them together. After adding the extra egg they were much easier to dip/roll in the cinnamo..." See moren sugar. Also I couldn't find ground anise for the life of me so I had to use a scant tsp of anise extract instead. They almost reminded me of shortbread cookies with a touch of anise flavor in the background."
"I am a high school Spanish teacher and i made these cookies for my class. They were a big hit. The students could not believe that I made homemade cookies. I did make then about a quarter inch thin..." See more so that the dough made more cookies. One batch made about sixty cookies. They were also inexpensive to make."
