1/2 1 oz. Bottle of Anise Extract (Should be 1 oz. of Anise Oil for more bite and flavor)
3 C. Flour
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together eggs, sugar, butter, and anise flavoring either in a stand mixer or large bowl with hand mixer.
Blend in dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll dough into small balls, only about 1/2" wide as they will expand quite a bit.
Bake on ungreased baking sheet for about 10-15 minutes until they are just starting to get golden brown on top. These cookies to not get very brown on top, but if you lift one up, the bottom will be a lovely golden color. Be sure to cook enough as they should be just slightly cakey when done right. (I haven't mastered this yet!)
Allow to cool completely and then glaze and sprinkle with colored candy balls. Glaze recipe below.
1/2 C. or more Confectioners Sugar
1 tsp. Milk
Colored Candy Sprinkles
Mix together sugar and milk until a thick liquid is achieved. You want the glaze to be thin enough to drip off the cookies, but thick enough to leave a nice off-white coating on the top.
Leave glaze in a small bowl. Hold each cookie upside down and dunk the top into the glaze, holding it out over the bowl to let the excess drip off. Flip over, place on parchment paper or wax paper (for easy clean up) and sprinkle with candies while wet. Allow to dry before serving.
