WOW!!!!! WOW!!!!WOW!!! This recipe is Awsome.. The only thing that I did different was to Add 1 oz. of the Anise Extract. We like our cookies a little stronger flavor... My husband was eating them as fast as I could get them off the cookie sheet.. I frosted them with White Frosting from the can that I bought from the store and flavored it a little with the anise oil... They were so good.. This is a keeper... I will be making these all the time.. They turn out so pretty.. They are going to look nice on a cookie try.. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us.. It's wonderful. I can't wait to make a cup of tea and have cookie's..

I had been baking an anise cookie recipe for years when this year (2 batches) there was a terrible after taste. I found Louise's recipe quick, easy and delicious! This will be replacing my old recipe!
