Courses: Dessert
Serves: 90 people

Recipe Ingredients

3   Eggs - (room temperature)
1 cup 198g / 7ozSugar
2 tablespoons 30mlSugar
1 3/4 cups 109g / 3.8ozFlour
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlBaking powder
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
3 teaspoons 15mlAnise seed

Recipe Instructions

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.
