Anise Cookie Slices
Butter or margarine
C and H Powdered Sugar
Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
(Mixture might look curdled.) Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Chill dough 3 hours. Divide soft dough in half. On a 17 by 14 inch cookie sheet, form each half of dough into a roll 1-1/2 inches wide and the length of the cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes.
Remove from oven and cut rolls into 3/4 inch slices. Place on cookie sheets, cut side down, return to oven and bake 10 minutes or until toasted and crisp. Makes about 48 slices.
