1 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl wisk the dry ingredients together.
2
Add the eggs to the dry mixture and start blending with a mixer.
3
Add the oil and the anise flavoring (you could substitute with almond flavoring) and continue to mix, scraping bowl until all ingredients are well mixed. (Batter will be wet)
4
On ungreased cookie sheet (I use a silpat) on them; arrange some of the batter in strips of 3-4 inches in width. (Allow room for spreading)I make 4 strips with this batter.
5
Place in a preheated oven at 375 degrees, for about 20 minutes. Biscuits should be golden. Remove from oven and cool on rack.
6
If icing the cookies, do this before cutting strips, width wise.

For the icing, combine the powdered sugar, butter and flavoring and mix well. Add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired thickness is achieved. You should be able to spread it easily.
