1 1/2 tsp bkg pwdr
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk flour, baking powder, anise seed, salt, almonds, and choc chips in bowl. With mixer, beat sugar, butter and anise extract. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour mixture and beat just until blended.

Form the dough into a 16-inch-ling, 3-inch-wide log on the parchment paper and bake until a light golden, approximately 30 minutes. Cool 30 minutes.

Place the log on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, (I use my electric knife), cut the log on a diagonal into 1/2-to3/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange the cookies cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake the cookies until pale golden on one side then turn and cook on the other side (about 5-7 minutes on each side). Transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Nick loved these. I could hardly keep them on hand. Because these cookies tend to take a while, I usually make a double batch. I also make these without chocolate chips for variety. As you can see, some of my measurements are approximates. I often adjust recipes to suit personal tastes.
