DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375 .
  • In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, and baking powder together.
  • Work in the shortening as you would when making pie dough, to the consistency of coarse meal.
  • Beat into the dough the eggs, milk, vanilla, and anise oil. The dough should be moist but not sticky. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  • Take a small portion of the dough and roll out to a 1/2 inch diameter cylinder.
  • Spread some sesame seeds on a large piece of waxed paper and roll the dough in the seeds until the cylinder is completely covered.
  • Cut the dough into 1 1/2 pieces on a diagonal.
  • Place the cookies on a lightly greased sheet pan and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cool the cookies on a rack and store in an airtight container.
