Instructions Checklist
  • Beat egg whites with water until stiff.

  • In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar, salt, and vanilla until creamy. Fold egg whites into yolks using a wire whisk. Sift flour and anise into the bowl, and gently stir together with the whisk. Mix will look lumpy.

  • Put dough into decorating bag with round large tip, and press 1 inch rounds onto sheet. Let cookies sit out overnight at room temperature to dry.

  • The next day, cover cookies with a sheet of parchment paper, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes. Cookies are done when bottom is light brown, but tops are still almost white. Cool.

  • Store in container for 2 to 3 weeks in a cool place to mellow and to turn soft. You can add a slice of bread or a piece of apple to help soften the cookies.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These were easy to make. I left them out for 8 hours then baked. They tasted good at that point. Now to wait for 3 weeks to see the softness emerge! Read More
