directions

  • 1

    In medium sized bowl, combine oil, sugar and eggs. Add flour, baking powder and anise. Mix well.

  • 2

    (Dough will be sticky.) Roll dough by 1 teaspoon full into a ball and place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 350 for 12 minutes (or until bottoms are lightly browned).

  • 3

    Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack (put news paper or brown bags underneath racks for easier cleanup later).

  • 4

    While cooling – make frosting: Add 1 Tablespoon of water to 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar and mix to a frosting consistency. Add slightly more water if necessary. Add food coloring of choice and 1/2 tsp anise flavoring. Spoon on to cooled cookies and sprinkle with colored Nonpareil sprinkles. (Typically I use more than one color of frosting).
