    Annacia's Note:

    These nutty butter cookies marry almonds, pecans, vanilla and anise seeds for a blissfully sweet union. Fabulous as kids’ party treats.

      I am so glad I reduced this recipe to just 1/2 dozen! They are so good and buttery that we would have gained 10 lbs gobbling them up. lol. I used all almonds for the nuts because at the last minute I found myself out of pecans. I made the 1/2 dozen using a mini food processor and it came out wonderfully. The description from Annacia says it all, a sweet (and buttery) blissful union. These cookies are buttery and crumbly and a definite keeper recipe. Thanks for sharing. :)

      These are very good! Love the buttery taste with the anise and pecans. I have a similar cookie but without the anise. My family gobbled these up. Thanks for sharing!
