I have used this recipe for years and it is one of our very favorites. Don't forget to crush the anise seed for lots more flavor. Read More

Great and easy recipe. It was everyones favorite at Christmas. The only thing I did differently was add 1 tsp. anise extract because we like a little more of the anise flavor. Besides that it was a perfect anise toast recipe! Read More

Awesome recipe I did add 1 tsp of anise extract in addition to the anise seeds. (we love the anise taste. I then remade them using the same amounts plus a 1/2 tsp of baking soda It yiled a lighter version- very close to the texture of the ones you buy in the store. Read More

This is a wonderful quick and affordable recipe. I added these to my Christmas cookie tray this year. Be careful not to overbake on the second baking. They brown fast. Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I did however modify it because while I love anise my husband does not. I omitted the anise seed and added 1 teaspoon of almond extract. Prior to baking I sprinkled sliced almonds on top. Everyone loved it and since it is so easy I'll be making more later today. Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I'm currently on my 3rd batch:) It's easy to make with only a few ingredients and it reminds me of the toast my Gram used to make. My first batch I only had one egg so I used applesauce and baking powder as a replacement and they tasted good but weren't as crispy as the second batch I made as written. Also you can use a tsp of anise extract in place of the anise seed. It gives a sharper flavor but I prefer mine with more anise. The batch in the oven now uses 3/4 of the called for amount of sugar and 1/4 molasses to try to achieve a warmer flavor. The batter tasted good so we'll see how it goes. All in all this is a great an simple recipe that's easy to experiment with. Thanks. Read More

These were really tasty if you like anise flavoring. I made mine a bit more healthy and subbed 1/2 c wheat flour 1/4 egg beaters for one egg and did 1/3 c splenda. Since they were toasted at the end I thought they still had a really nice texture and flavor. Thanks! Read More
