Yield: 48 slices
|½ cup||Butter or margarine|
|3 ounces||Cream cheese|
|1½ cup||C and H Powdered Sugar|
|3¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|3 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|2 teaspoons||Anise seeds|
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 1-½ 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 ¾ 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.
