Anise cookie slices

Yield: 48 slices

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Butter or margarine
3 ounces Cream cheese
1½ cup C and H Powdered Sugar
4 \N Eggs
3¼ cup All-purpose flour
3 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt

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.
