3/4 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 bottle anise extract (1 oz)
4 cups flour (approximately)
1/4 tablespoon baking powder
slightly beaten egg and additional sugar for sprinkling cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using stand mixer, cream butter and sugar well. Beat in eggs one at a time and add the anise extract. Add the flour - about one cup at a time, mixing well before adding more. Use enough flour to make a stiff batter.
Take a small amount of batter (about a tablespoon) in your hand and form into a S-shaped cookie. Place on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Brush top of cookie with the slightly beaten egg. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for about 15 minutes - until golden in color. Cool and enjoy.
These cookies can be frozen.
