Anise Cookies

My daughter Ellen and I love these cookies, but Sarah hates them. It all depends on whether you like the idea of licorice-flavored cookies.


Anise Cookies

1 3/4 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. anise seeds
1/2 c. shortening or margarine
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine dry ingredients. In large bowl, cream shortening and add sugar, egg, and vanilla. Gradually blend in dry ingredients. Roll by tablespoons into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.
