Ingredients

½ stick butter
unsalted, softened
¼ cup vegetable shortening
*
cup powdered sugar
¼ cup sugar
granulated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
plus 2 tbsp
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking powder
*
½ teaspoon aniseed
¾ cup pine nuts
lightly toasted

Directions

Using electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening, and the sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Beat in the vanilla. In another bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder, and add the flour to the butter mixture.

Process the aniseed and ½ cup of the cooled pine nuts to a fine grind, and add to the dough.

Blend well. Drop teaspoons of the dough 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets, topping each cookie with several of the remaining pine nuts.

Bake in a preheated 325F oven for 18 to 20 minutes until they are golden.

Switch the positions of the baking sheets halfway through the cooking time.

Let the cookies cool on the sheets for 2 minutes and carefully transfer (the cookies are very delicate) to racks.

Store in airtight containers.
