Another winner cookie from you!! I loved that they aren't so sweet, just perfect for my taste. The anise and lemon peel is subtle and very fragrant, not too strong, which I also like very much. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Greece for The Apron String Travelers

Good cookies. Not real sweet. Anise and lemon flavors are good together. I might add more lemon next time. Made for ZWT6.
