Anise Slices (Biscotti)
2 1/2 cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 stick butter, softened
1 Tbsp. Anise extract
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour 2 cookie sheets.
Combine flour, salt and baking powder and set aside. Beat butter and sugar until very light and
fluffy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in anise; add flour mixture and beat
until well blended.
Divide mixture in half.
Spread each half in a loaf on each cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; cut into 1 inch thick
slices. Turn each on its side and bake
for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until well toasted. This recipe doubles nicely.
