  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Gradually mix in the sifted ingredients and anise seeds until well blended. Cover and chill for several hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. Sprinkle the tops with a mixture of the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Happy Holidays!

This recipe is a must try for everyone who loves butter cookies :) -if your worried about putting the seeds in your cookies, u dont really notice them and they make the cookies taste great.

The taste was right, but they were as hard as a rock. Not sure what I did wrong. Would like something a little more moist.

I knew I would like these cookies but I was unsure of my son because of the licorice taste of anise seed but he loves them! Way too go. I will be making these more often

These are simply delicious and so easy to make. I wasn't in the mood to roll out the dough so I spooned the mix into balls and pressed them with a glass into rounds - then sprinkled them with ci...
