This is a great thick biscuit that is dusted with cinnamon sugar. Great after dinner with coffee. Use biscuit cutters to make fancy shapes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the lard and 1 1/2 cups sugar until smooth. Mix in the aniseed and beat until fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Add the sifted ingredients and brandy and stir until well blended.
  3. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1cm thickness and cut into desired shapes using biscuit cutters. Place biscuits onto baking trays. Mix together the 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops of the biscuits.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
