This is a holiday tradition in my family for over 40 years. I got the recipe from my mom, for these German cookies. Actually, I am not a fan of anise, so I plan to make them with another flavoring. Recipe yield is unknown, I just entered a random value. Enjoy!

These are tasty. I'm the only one in my house so YEA! I get them all to myself! I baked them 5 minutes longer than called for (put two sheets in at once) and they still could have been in a bit longer. I will do these again to see if I can get my baking time right. Reviewed for ZWT4.

I love anise but rarely find a recipe I really like for cookies. This one hit the spot. They are very good. I love their texture. Made for ZWT 4.
