plus 2 tablespoons
or, 3 teaspoon anise seed
Beat eggs in mixer until fluffy and add the sugar gradually beating continuously.
Continue to beat for 20 minutes (this time is correct). Add the dry ingredients which have been sifted together and beat for another three minutes.
Add anise extract. Drop on well greased and floured cookie sheets and form a round cookie by swirling the dough with a spoon.
Let stand to dry over night.
Bake at 325F for about 15 minutes or until cookies are a light golden color.
Yield about 3½ dozen cookies.
NOTE:: Don't even try these unless you like anise.
