These are italian cookies really easy to make that can be made in almost any flavor you desire but here’s the classic recipe so you can taste its original form
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Additional: 15 mins
- 1 cup white sugar
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon anise extract, or 3 drops anise oil
- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Beat together sugar, oil, eggs, and anise extract in a medium bowl until well-blended. Combine flour and baking powder in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture to form a heavy dough.
Divide dough into two equal pieces. Form each piece into a log the length of a cookie sheet. Place one log on each of the prepared sheets; and press dough down to 1/2-inch thickness.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer logs to wire racks; let sit until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.
Slice each log crosswise into about eighteen 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place slices cut-sides up back on the cookie sheets.
Bake until lightly toasted and golden brown, 6 to 10 minutes per side.
