Cooking time: 8-10 mins Easy - for beginners Serves: 48 cookies


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


  • 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.
