This recipe is not only loved by Italian-decendents. I guarantee you will WOW your family and friends with my Annisete Cookie Recipe. It has a little extra 'pizazz' than most recipes out there, and I always get raving reviews.

  • Servings: 2 1/2 dozen cookies
  • Prep Time: 10 - 15 Minutes w/ decorating
  • Cook Time: 10 Minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


8 cups All-purpose Flour
2 cups White Sugar
1 cup Milk 4 Eggs
2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1½ cups Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsp Anise Extract
4 tsp Anise Extract
2 cups Confectioners' Sugar
¼ cup Hot Water
to Make Icing: Blend In 1 - 2 Tablespoons Anise Extract & Enough Hot Water To 1 Cup Confectioner's Sugar To Form a Smooth Icing.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and white sugar. Make a hole in the center and add oil, milk, 2 tablespoon anise extract, and eggs. Mix together until dough is moist.

Put some shortening on your fingers and take off dough in 1 - 2 inch pieces. Roll into a ball and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart. Press down lightly on each cookie.

Bake for 10 minutes, until the bottom of the cookie is a warm brown color.

Dip cookies in Icing once they are cooled and sprinkle with rainbow nonpareil sprinkles.
