These German biscuits are traditionally made with a mould, but I bet that they can be made by simply cutting them out. You can substitute other flavourings for anise - lemon and almond are good.
These are good. Really grease the cookie sheet! These stick to parchment paper! - 28 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These cookies are amazing! These turned out just like my German grandmother's cookies did years ago. My only suggestion would be to add a bit more anise old (personal preference) and be sure not to overbake. Absolutely delicious! - 09 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great simple recipe for these cookies! I've made them before for my husband (very German family) and he loves them. The trick is to not over measure the flour and add a little fresh lemon zest. - 04 Dec 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
