  • 1 Tbsp anise seeds

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix well.

Combine wet and dry until just mixed.

Then fold in:

  • 2/3 c pepitas

With wet hands, form into 2 logs on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 20-25min - should spring back to touch.

Remove and wait about 10min. Slice into 2-3cm (3/4-1") cookies.

Place flat on cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 20-30min - till crisp. (Flip cookies half way through baking.)
You can also bake cookies on a cooling rack for 10-20min - till crisp.

When cool, store in a covered container. Will keep for weeks. Lovely with espresso or tea, great for dipping or crunching.
