Step 1

* Mix sugar with butter, anise seed, anise liqueur, bourbon, and nuts.

* Beat in the eggs.

* Sift and measure flour after sifting.

* Sift again with baking powder into the sugar mixture.

* Blend thoroughly.

* Cover and chill the dough for 2-3 hrs.(Yes, really! My mom would say "follow the directions if you want it turn out right")

* On a lightly floured board, shape dough with your hands to form flat loaves that are about 1/2 inch thick and 2 inches wide.

* Make the loaves as long as your cookie sheets.

* Place no more than 2 loaves, parallel and well apart on a buttered cookie sheet.

* Bake in 375 oven for 20 minutes.

* Remove from the oven and let loaves cool on pans until you can touch them.

* Cut diagonal slices that are about ½ to ¾ inch thick.

* Lay slices on cut sides. Keep them close together on cookie sheet.

* Return to the oven (375 degrees) for 15 minutes more or until lightly toasted.

* Cool on wire racks.
