A great cake like Italian cookie. Very popular here in our city. If I can make this anyone can!

Preparation time:
Cooking time: 8-10 mins

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 48 cookies


1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup white sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons anise extract or anise flavouring
3 cups all purpose flour


Beat eggs with oil and sugar 5 minutes
Combine the milk and anise flavour
Combine the flour and salt and baking powder
Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients
Make a soft, very soft dough - soft but not sticky. If you add too much flour they will be dry
Roll pieces of dough into finger lengths and widths and shape into a figure 8
Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet
Bake 350 for 8-10 minutes, just until bottoms are slightly golden. Tops should have no colour
Frost with a glaze of icing powder, anise flavour and a drop of milk.
