Adapted from the Time-Life Good Cook
series (Cookies & Crackers volume)
Oven 350 degrees F
Time 10 minutes
2 cups sugar
600 grams soft wheat
3 1/2 tablespoon anise seeds
4 cups unbleached or whole wheat pastry flour
Beat the eggs until they're light colored, thick and smooth. Add
the sugar and continue beating until very thick and falling in heavy
ribbons from the paddle. Basically, beat it as as long as you can
stand and then still more: this gives body to the dough and
leavens the cookies, so you don't want to skimp--some 5-10 minutes on
medium speed with a mixer, 15 min by hand.
Gently fold in the flour and drop by tablespoonsful onto greased
sheets, not too far apart (they won't spread much). Let sit
uncovered on for a couple of hours, until the tops are dry, or even
Bake 10 minutes, until barely golden at the edges.
Makes 9 dozen cookies @ approx 37 calories each:
