Anise Slices (Biscotti)

Cindy Rosarbo


2 1/2 cups flour
¼ tsp. salt
3 eggs
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.
