    I was just thinking of posting this because I've fallen in love with these cookies - and found it already posted here. This is not my normal choice for a cookie, but I went out and bought some anise extract...and I'm so glad I did. The dough is quite oily, 2/3 a cup is quite a bit....but I didn't mess with it (yet). It's very easy dough to work with and I like to press them with the bottom of a glass dipped in water as the author describes in another cookie recipe. I made the pieces of fig quite a bit smaller so as to not scare off the little people in the house. I can't say they were a big hit with them, more of an adult cookie and that's just fine with me. :) Try em!
