1/2 Photos of Anisbroetli (Aniseed Biscuits)
These are traditional Swiss biscuits, made with moulds similar to shortbread moulds. They are hard, and great to nibble on and dunk in coffee. I also make an almond variation for those who don't care for anise, I will post separately. It makes quite a bit depending on the size of your cutters, but is easily halved.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Break the anise seeds down a little in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle so they are not so chunky.
- 2Cream eggs and sugar.
- 3Add kirsch, ground aniseed, and salt.
- 4Add flour and knead to a dough. You may need a little extra flour to get it to the right consistency.
- 5Roll out the dough to 1cm thick on a floured surface.
- 6Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes, make decorations on them using shortbread moulds (or use Anisbrötli Mödeli if you have them!).
- 7Place on baking paper on an oven tray.
- 8Bake at 160 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes. The biscuits should not brown but stay light in colour.
