I LOVE licorice, but my hubby NO! LOL! So I get to enjoy a lot of these myself (other than the ones that get sent to his work or a gift bag.) I don't mind. ;) Happy Holidays! (photo from taste of home)

    In a bowl, cream shortening and sugar until fluffy; add egg and aniseed. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture. Add orange juice and mix well. On a floured surface, knead until well blended, about 4-5 minutes. Roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness; cut into 2" shapes. Place on greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 12-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine sugar and cinnamon; roll cookies in the mixture while still warm coating well. Cool on wire racks.
