Anise Oil Peppernuts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rather Be Cookin

Flavorful bite size crunchy cookies. A German tradition that's been passed down from my family. Perfect for the holiday season. These can be refrigerated and baked at any time.

This is basically the recipe I've used all my life, but it's a little misleading to say it only takes 20 minutes. You forget to take into account how long it takes to cut and place the peppernuts on cookie sheets. I can usually count on it taking an hour because I'm busy cutting and placing on the next cookie sheet the entire time the other cookie sheet is in the oven.
