Self-Frosting Anise Drops Recipe - Cooking Index
|3||Eggs - (room temperature)|
|1 cup||198g / 7oz||Sugar|
|1 3/4 cups||109g / 3.8oz||Flour|
|1/2 teaspoon||2.5ml||Baking powder|
|3 teaspoons||15ml||Anise seed|
Preheat oven to 325F. Grease and generously flour the cookie sheets.
Beat eggs with electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar gradually, beating constantly; continue to beat for 20 minutes more. Reduce speed of mixer and add flour that has been sifted with baking powder and salt; beat 3 minutes. Add anise. Drop by teaspoonful on prepared cookie sheets, swirling dough to form round cookies. Let stand uncovered at room temperature for at least 8 hours.
Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are a creamy golden color on the bottom (do not allow bottoms to brown). Cookies form a cake-like layer on the bottom with a crisp "frosting" on the top. Store in a tightly covered container.
