  • Cut cookies apart and on greased baking sheet, sprinkle with anise seeds. Let cookies sit out overnight, covered, to "dry".

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place cookies into oven and reduce temp to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Bake until light yellow only, approx. 15 minutes. They are not supposed to get brown!

  • These cookies are a hard cookie, need to be stored for at least 2-3 weeks. You can add a slice of apple to "soften" back up or a slice of bread works, too. Replace bread or apple every 2-3 days.
