Makes: 42 pieces

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (225g) caster sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) anise extract, or 3 drops anise oil

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, sugar and anise flavoring until well blended. Combine the flour and baking powder, stir into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough. Divide dough into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll as long as your cookie sheet. Place roll onto the prepared cookie sheet, and press down to 1 cm (1/2 inch) thickness.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheet to cool on a wire rack. When The cookies are cool enough to handle, slice each one crosswise into 1cm (1/2 inch) slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side. Slices should be lightly toasted.
