This is my mom's recipe. She got it from her girlfriend, Bernie. Both great cooks. The directions weren't that great so I had to improvise a bit. I'm posting this for Val who requested it. Val, hope you make this and let us know how it turns out. Will definitely be making this for Easter this year!

Hi Dolores - I love anise too. You can put an anise icing on top of the bread too...delish.

A friend of mine made Italian Easter Bread. He used anise in it and the aroma, well, let's put it this way, we took it on the plane from CA to PA and everyone commented asking "What Smells so Good?" That was fun. Your bread looks wonderful!
