Anise Biscuits

(1 Votes)
15 Min

Here's an easy, one-step biscotti that's a super little "dunker" for coffee or tea. In fact, in Italy they serve biscuits like these for breakfast.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons anise seed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, anise seed, and salt. Add the eggs and oil and mix until well blended.

  3. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then form into cigar shapes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until light golden.

    Makes about 3 dozen biscuits.

My Mother used to make these cookies with one or two variations. She always added almonds and orange zest for flavor, and she also made a big roll out of the dough and sliced to make the biscuit shape. The original Biscotti!
