       Title: Anisplatzchen
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 40 servings
  
       3 lg Eggs; room temp
       1 c  Sugar; plus 2 tb
   1 3/4 c  Flour; sifted
     1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt; or less
       1 ts Anise extract; or
       3 ts Anise seed
  
     Beat eggs in mixer until fluffy and add the sugar gradually beating
   continuously.  Continue to beat for 20 minutes (this time is correct) Add
   the dry ingredients which have been sifted together and beat for another
   three minutes. Add anise extract. Drop on well greased and floured cookie
   sheets and form a round cookie by swirling the dough with a spoon. Let
   stand to dry over night. Bake at 325 for about 15 minutes or until cookies
   are a light golden color. Yield about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
     NOTE:: Don't even try these unless you like anise.   This is an entirely
   different tasting cookie which originated in Germany. They are very unusual
   in that they are self frosted tops and can be made well ahead of the
   holidays and stored in air tight tins.
