1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 1/2 Tbsp anise extract
1/3 cup anise seeds
6 eggs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

in meduim bowl stir together the flour and baking powder

Grind the anise seeds until they are pulverized ( i find that a coffee grinder works best)

In a large mixing bowl beat eggs until they are light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat for 3 minutes

Stir in the oil and anise extract. Fold in the dry ingredients until well blended.

Spread the mixture into an oiled 9 x 13 inch pan and bake 15-20 minutes.

When the pan cools down slightly , cut the cookie down the middle lenghtwise then cut each half into 1/2 inch slices . Place slices on cooling rack t o finish cooling , you can sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top of the cookies if you like.

This cookie has an intense anisette flavor, I'ts a sponge cookie recipe that i like to make every so often, not only does it have an extra amount of anise extract in it but i also like to add a healthy dose of ground anise seeds in the recipe to give it that intense anise flavor i love. If you like anisette sponge cookies i think you will be pleased with these cookies.
