This recipe came from one of my DH's Aunts. When she made these, she made enough for everyone to enjoy. These are great with a cup of coffee.

This is a very easy recipe to make. I love a cookie recipe where the hardest thing is bringing the butter to room temperature! :) I had no problem with the dough being too stiff. I think the basic recipe would work with other extracts instead of anise, such as orange or lemon. The anise was very mild and I may add a bit more extract next time.
