DIRECTIONS

  • In a boiler, bring chancaca, water, orange rind and cloves to boil. Simmer for 40 minutes until mixture forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water or reaches 238° F (113° C) on a candy thermometer. Cool.
  • While the syrup is cooking, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix salt into flour.
  • Cut butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender.
  • Add egg yolks and aniseed water. Knead dough until soft.
  • Take small portions of dough and roll, on a ligtly floured surface, into sticks about 1/2 x 9 inches.
  • Transfer sticks to a greased baking sheet, placing them 1 inch apart.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool.
  • Place sticks on a serving dish, one beside the other, in one layer. Pour cold syrup on top. Place a second layer of sticks crosswise and pour syrup. Repeat a third layer and cover with the rest of syrup.
  • Decorate with sprinkles or dragees if desired.
