DIRECTIONS

  • Break the anise seeds down a little in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle so they are not so chunky.
  • Cream eggs and sugar.
  • Add kirsch, ground aniseed, and salt.
  • Add flour and knead to a dough. You may need a little extra flour to get it to the right consistency.
  • Roll out the dough to 1cm thick on a floured surface.
  • Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes, make decorations on them using shortbread moulds (or use Anisbrötli Mödeli if you have them!).
  • Place on baking paper on an oven tray.
  • Bake at 160 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes. The biscuits should not brown but stay light in colour.
