    penny3960's Note:

    Growing up in a Greek family, I remember the bread my family purchased at a Greek bakery each Easter. I found this recipe in a 1965 Better Homes & Garden Bread Cook Book and it is one of my favorites. The dough can be easily made in a bread machine, then shaped before baking. I love the aroma of the anise as the bread bakes. The oils of cinnamon & anise can be found at baking supply shops.
