Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
Preheat oven to 375 degrees..
4 cups of flour
6 teaspoons of baking powder
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of milk
2 large eggs
1/2 bottle of a 1 ounce bottle of Anise Extract
In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, & sugar. Mix together. Make a well in the center of the mixture & add the oil, eggs, milk & anise extract. Beat the liquid mixture with a fork to blend it & gradually stir in the flour mixture from the sides of the bowl until all flour is mixed in & the dough is sticky. DO NOT ADD ANYMORE FLOUR! Slip finger into some flour & pinch off a small piece of dough, about 1" in diameter. Roll it into a ball. Place on lightly greased cookie pan about 1" apart. Repeat for all cookies. Gently tap each cookie down. Bake for a maximum of 8 minutes. Tops will be white & bottoms will be medium brown. Gently lift up 1 cookie to check. If you make the cookies too large, they will be undercooked in the center. While cookies are still warm, dip the tops of them into the icing.
1/2 pound of confectioery sugar
Remaining half bottle of Anise Extract
Food Coloring if desired
Put confectionery sugar into a bowl & add a little bit of hot water at a time. Add the Anise Extract & mix all together. Add just enough hot water to make the icing workable. You don't want the icing too thick or too thin. Add a few drops of food coloring if desired. Allow icing to set.
The amount of Anise Extract I use is not the amount normally use. I use extra because the cookies taste better. I also usually check the cookies at 6&1/2 minutes because all ovens are different. As for the confectionery sugar, use your own judgement. I don't measure the confectionery sugar. I just put it into the bowl until it looks right. You can always add more confectionery sugar if necessary. ENJOY!
