I used this recipe and it was good but I isubstituted pure anise oil, it is stronger so you use less, They turned out good I cut them into shapes and also just round cookies and then dipped them in the icing and sprinkled them they are really good!

Stunning!~ I am not a big anisette fan, but my Italian in-laws are. Thought there was too much extract in the cookies, I was wrong; they were actually perfect! No time for pictures, the family ate them all in one sitting. They were soft, a cross between a cookie and a bread. The texture perfect, the sweetness divine. The great thing we discussed at the table was how easy this would be to adapt to any other extract, lemon, almond, orange or a liquer. I am now asked to make these at the next family party. The sprinkles made all of us happy, great touch. The icing was a bit strong, which the family loved. I would tone it down a lot! This was a big hit and recommended. I used my mixmaster which made these really easy.

Love these cookies! They were easy to make, did not need to pull out the heavy mixer. Dough easy to handle. Decorating a breeze. Soft cookie with a pronounced anise flower. I got 61 cookies out of my batch. A must for the Holiday cookie tray.
