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'. Preheat oven to 350° and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until pale golden brown. Remove from oven, cut into one-inch-thick slices, turn each on its side and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove slices to wire rack and let cool.
