2 cups white sugar
1 cup coffee (liquid)
1 cup syrup or honey (I use honey)
3 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbls. Star Anise
3 tsp. soda
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp cloves
7 - 7 1/4 cups flour (I usually use only 7 cups - dough will be sticky).

Chill overnight in refrigerator. Roll into balls. Bake 10-12 minutes until light brown at 350 degrees. DO NOT OVERBAKE.

Glaze for Cookies:

2 cups powder sugar
2 tsp Anise flavoring

Enough cream or milk to the powder sugar so you can drizzle over cookies.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always use the large 12 inch Tupperware Cake Taker. Put 1 cup powder sugar or so at a time in plastic or paper bag and shake 1 dozen or so at a time. Continue till done adding more powdered sugar if needed. Put on cookie sheet to dry. Best stored in Tupperware - burp seal.
