DIRECTIONS

Sift flour with baking powder and salt three times and set aside. With mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add anise. At low speed, beat in flour mixture. Grease two cookie sheets. Divide mixture in half and spread each half on a cookie sheet measuring 11" X 5'.

Remove slices to wire rack and let cool.
