Personal Notes:
These cookies were baked for special occasions such as weddings, graduations, anniversaries, and especially Easter. My grandmother would put a white sheet on her dining room table and the entire table would be full of cookies. Mom made them often in Nashville because my friends all loved them, especially when we used almond extract instead of anise. I made them at Christmas and gave some as gifts. It's a great dunking cookie!
