      These are delicious! The Greeks certainly like their butter. I skipped the anisette and added some anise seeds, hoping it would be similar, and I really have no way of knowing, but it sure tasted good! I ended up making them too small, so I ended up with about 75 little mushroom-top shaped cookies. I actually recommend them that way, they're great after a big meal when you can't eat much more, and they look so cute and tiny!
