anise or almond flavoring (or vanilla)
1In a large bowl wisk the dry ingredients together.
2Add the eggs to the dry mixture and start blending with a mixer.
3Add 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)
4On 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.
5Place in a preheated oven at 375 degrees, for about 20 minutes. Biscuits should be golden. Remove from oven and cool on rack.
6If icing the cookies, do this before cutting strips, width wise.
8For 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.
