    One of my favorite cookies, especially for the holidays! Delicate crisp sugar cookies with a delightful 'Old World' orange-anise flavor, these cookies are a wonderful addition to the holiday cookie tray and are lovely enjoyed with a cup of tea or your favorite holiday beverage. Enjoy! From Sunset Magazine, Dec. 2001.

    dozen c ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat shortening and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Add egg, orange peel, and orange juice and beat just until combined.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, mix 2 1/2 cups flour, anise seeds, baking powder, and salt. Add to shortening mixture, stir to mix, then beat well until well blended. Divide dough in half and flatten each half into a disk. Wrap each disk tightly in plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

      Unwrap dough. On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll one disk at a time to about 1/8-inch thick. With floured (2 to 2 1/2-inch) cookie cutters, cut dough into shapes and place about 1-inch apart on greased cookie sheets.
    4. 4
      Bake cookies at 350°F just until edges are golden, about 10-12 minutes. Cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
