You must find some time to make these cookies because are simply delicious; one of my best friend's favorites. They are classic sugar cookies with the blended flavors of vanilla, anise and rum.

Directions

  1. Place the anise seeds in a small bowl with the rum. Set aside to marinate overnight.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the anise seed and rum. Mix in the egg. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and cloves; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown at the edges. Cool for a few minutes on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I made these cookies for a Mexican themed dinner at a local concert-in-the-park. They were wonderful. I did make the mistake of serving them alongside some empanadas which were very sweet. The sweetness made these seem bland. Today, I tried it again and wow!!! They were wonderful. I also wonder if the flavor blended more the next day? I had a mom in my daughter's class (who is from Mexico) try one and she loved it. She said her mom would also sprinkle powdered sugar on these for looks. I really didn't find them to be any more labor intensive than making sugar cookies. When others find out that you soaked anise seeds in rum, they label you as a great cook! I think I'll take that title and run with it! I will def. keep this recipe. Thank you Ruben!

These are very mellow cookies...they have just enough spice to taste it but you might like a little more punch! Very good though.
