Anise flavored Italian biscotti-like cookie that is lighter and softer in texture. This 'twice baked' cookie is enjoyable with a cup of coffee or anytime.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside. Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in one egg until completely incorporated, then another. Beat in the last egg along with the anise extract. Mix in the flour until just incorporated. Divide the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Form each portion into a 12-inch long log, 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and firm to the touch, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool 5 minutes. Cut into 3/4-inch thick slices using a serrated knife, and place cut-side-down onto the baking sheets. Return to the oven, and bake 5 to 10 minutes until the bottoms turn golden brown. Turn the cookies over, and continue baking until golden brown on the other side, 5 to 10 minutes more. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

The dough is very sticky and soft ... you should not be tempted to add more flour or use your hands to shape. I scoop up a spoonful of dough with a soup size spoon and lay it on the cookie sheet and keep doing that until I have several spoonfuls of dough laying next to and touching each other in a very crude shaped log. Then I take a rubber spatula and push/pat it into a log shape about 10-12" long, about 4" wide and 1/2" high (each log). This dough is very soft but will bake up into shape. Hope this helps everyone.

As I was making this recipe I began to think I had done something wrong. I didn't think these would turn out at all but I was wrong. I'm making these a new staple in my home. Next time I might get fancy and dip the tops in chocolate and shredded almonds. The only change I made was I used vanilla and almond extract because I didn't have anise extract. Thank you for sharing linda I love this recipe!

These are better than delicious! I cut off the ends and ate them while the cookies were baking and they are so delicious I am pulling them out of the oven to eat because they are THAT good!!!! I am a big Stella Dora Anisette toast, but I can't get them where I am in Hawaii and these blow them away. So incredibly delicious!!!! Thank you thank you thank you for the recipe!!!
