Anise Cutout Cookies - idealistinfire - 06-08-2012 05:35 AM


2 cups shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons anise seed
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar until fluffy; add eggs and aniseed. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture. Add apple juice and mix well.
On a floured surface, knead until well blended, about 4-5 minutes. Roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness; cut into 2-in. shapes. Place on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine sugar and cinnamon; roll cookies in the mixture while still warm. Cool on wire racks.
