Anise cookies were always a constant while I was growing up. My grandmother never let a Christmas go by without baking her wonderful anise pizzelles and anise cookies. But sadly many years ago she passed away and gone were the days of anise cookies. Sure we’ve had pizzelles through the years but those really aren’t my thing.
I was just out of high school when she passed and too young to appreciate what a treasure her recipes really were. If only I’d had a few more years with her to learn some of her tips and tricks.
Since I’ve been really into baking this year I sought out a recipe for some good anise cookies. And I have found a really great one! These anise cookies turned out so soft and fluffy. I’m usually not a big cookie eater but I just can’t resist these little buggers. This is by far one of my favorite recipes I’ve tried in a really long time!
