Top Review by mianbao

These are fantastic! I made only two changes in the recipe: I used pre-sliced almonds, and instead of anise extract, I used 1 teaspoon of absinthe, an anise flavored liqueur. The cookies did spread in the first baking rather more than I expected, but the flavor more than makes up for that. I would never have guessed that you could get this favor from coffee and anise. Thank you, Wendy, for wonderful cookies.
