"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Beat eggs and sugar in large bowl with mixer for 10 minutes, or by hand for an hour. Dissolve baking powder in milk, add to egg-sugar mixture.

Add salt, melted butter and anise oil or extract. Stir in flour, a small amount at a time, until too stiff to stir. Knead in remaining flour to make very stiff dough.

Roll out with regular pin to 1/4 inch thickness, then roll light once with floured Springerle rolling pin. Cut cookies along cutting mark made by Springerle pin, or about 2-inch square.

Let the cookies set overnight (or about 8 hours) on floured surface, then bake on cookie sheet that has been greased, floured and sprinkled with 1 Tbsp anise seed.

Bake in a 300 oven for 15 minutes, or until bottoms are barely colored but tops are still white. Do not let the tops brown; if they start to brown before the 15 minutes are up, remove cookies from oven.

Personal Notes:
I make these every holiday season, even if I don't get to them till after Christmas Day. Betty gave me the special rolling pin for one of our first married Christmases. The anise flavor is unusual and 'just right'.
