Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until they are light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat for about 3 minutes. Stir in the oil and anise extract. Fold in the dry ingredients until well blended. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  3. When the pan cools slightly, cut the cookie down the middle, lengthwise. Cut each half into 1/2 inch slices. Place slices onto a cookie sheet and return to the oven long enough to brown on each side, like toast. Store in a tightly covered container.

I made these after making 4 other good kinds of cookies. Once my husband tasted these, the other cookies got barely touched til these were gone. You do have to grease the pan, and may have to adjust baking time just a bit, but these were sooooo good. I made a glaze from powdered sugar, milk and a few drops of anise extract and drizzled it on with a fork. They were delicious!

These are easy and taste great. Be sure to grease the pan. The batter more like a cake than cookie don't let that worry you. Wonderful. I made these also in a lemon version: omit anise; add 1 Tablespoon lemon extract and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest.

This cookie definitly beats Stella Doro Anise Cookie!! This cookie is crisp on the outside and very soft on the inside. A big hit at my family parties.
