Serves 32 | Prep Time | Cook Time 15


2 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon anise seed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup chopped almonds, chopped

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together eggs, sugar, and butter.

In another bowl mix together flour and baking powder. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and stir in anise seed, vanilla, brandy and chopped almonds.

Separate the dough into 4 balls. Roll the dough into a roll about 1-inch across. Then cut the dough every 1/2-inch to make bars 1-inch by 1/2-inch wide. For a more "log-like" cookie, cut each cookie in half, prior to baking them.

Place on a greased and floured baking sheet with 1/2-inch in between cookies.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until done. Remove from oven. Will look similar to shortbread but much lighter and cake-like.

Makes 32 cookies.
