I got this cookie recipe from a good friend. It's important to use anise oil, not anise extract.

  1. Cream together Crisco, sugar, eggs and anise oil.
  2. Add flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour. (Dough will be very soft).
  4. Drop by small spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  6. I like to frost them with a French vanilla or buttercream frosting. If I am using frosting from a can, I frost them when ready to eat. At Christmas, I use red or green frosting.
