These are my best friend's favourite biscuits I just had to share the recipe. They are classic sugar biscuits with vanilla, anise and rum flavours.
FOR ONE WHO DOES NOT LIKE TO SPEND THE TIME ROLLING OUT THE DOUGH AND CUTTING SHAPES ,I DECIDED TO DECREASE THE FLOUR TO 2 1/4 CUPS AND DROP BY TBSPS.I THEN FLATTENED THEM WITH THE THE BOTTOM OF A FLAT GLASS DIPPED IN SUGAR .THEY CAME OUT GREAT. TASTED FANTASTIC !!! - 23 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made these cookies for a Mexican themed dinner at a local concert-in-the-park. They were wonderful. I did make the mistake of serving them alongside some empanadas which were very sweet. The sweetness made these seem bland. Today, I tried it again and wow!!! They were wonderful. I also wonder if the flavor blended more the next day? I had a mom in my daughter's class (who is from Mexico) try one and she loved it. She said her mom would also sprinkle powdered sugar on these for looks. I really didn't find them to be any more labor intensive than making sugar cookies. When others find out that you soaked anise seeds in rum, they label you as a great cook! I think I'll take that title and run with it! I will def. keep this recipe. Thank you Ruben! - 12 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are very mellow cookies...they have just enough spice to taste it but you might like a little more punch! Very good though. - 22 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
