       Title: ANISE COOKIES “ ANESPLATZCHEN”
  Categories: Cookies, Ethnic
       Yield: 5 dozen
  
       3    Eggs, room temperature
       1 c  Plus 2 Tbs. sugar
   1 3/4 c  Flour
     1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt
   1 1/2 ts Anise extract
  
   Beat eggs until fluffy in mixer bowl at medium speed.
   gradually beat in sugar. Continue beating 20 minutes
   more ( a must ). At low speed blend in flour, baking
   powder and salt. Add anise extract and beat only to
   blend. Drop by teaspoonful on greased and floured
   baking sheets about 1/2 inch apart. Swirl each to make
   a circular form. You can bake these two ways. Either
   let stand on baking sheets for 8 hours  at room
   temperature ( to dry out ) or bake immediately. Either
   way bake at 325 degrees about 10 minutes or until firm
   looking or set. cool on rack and store airtight. If
   made the first way to dry out these are a coffee
   dunker cookie or if baked immediately they are much
   softer and delicate.Either way they are delicious. I
   bake mine the second way.
