Anisette Cookies to Die For!

Anisette Cookies to Die For!

One of my favorite holiday cookies to make is Anisette Cookies.  These cookies have that wonderful anisette flavor yet are a bit soft.  I don’t particularly enjoy the hard-as-a-rock version. I made these cookies for my 2010 Cookie Exchange Party.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!


Anisette Cookies


  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Anise Seed
  • 3 C Flour
  • 2 Bars of Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 C Sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients together - dough should be pliable and not stick to fingers.
  2. Form 2 to 3 loaves per cookie sheet. Press somewhat flat.
  3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes at 350 degrees. DO NOT PREHEAT! Once edges are golden brown, remove from oven.
  4. Slice on a slant and let cool.
