Ingredients

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    cup melted butter

  • 4

    Tbsp. anise seed

  • 1/4

    Cup anise-flavored liqueur

  • 3

    Tbsp. bourbon

  • 2

    cups coarsely chopped almonds or walnuts

  • 6

    eggs

  • 5 1/2

    cups regular all purpose flour

  • 1

    Tbsp. baking powder

Directions

* 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.
