Anise Cookies #4
Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Beat egg whites until stiff and combine the two mixtures. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar, mix lightly. Sift the flour and add; then stir in the anise seed. Drop from the tip of a teaspoon, about one inch apart, on a greased cookie sheet. Put pans into ice box over night. Bake the next morning at 300-F for 12 minutes. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes, Culinary Arts Press, 1936.
