Grandma G's Anise Cookies
The story changes from sibling to sibling in my husband's family. He is number 6 out of 8 kids in his family. However, the one thing I do know for fact, it that these are the cookies that his Grandma G used to make every year for the holidays, and one that holds fond memories for each of her grandchildren (even if the story differs from one to the next).
3 extra large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour 1 teaspoon anise seed
Beat eggs until light. Add sugar and continue beating 10 minutes on high. Stir in the flour and anise seed. Spread into 2 greased 8x8 baking pans. Bake for 12-15 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven. Let cool 2 minutes and then turn out to cool completely. Cut into bars and serve.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
