ITALIAN ANISE COOKIES WITH ICING AND SPRINKLES RECIPE ...



Italian Anise Cookies With Icing and Sprinkles Recipe ... image

These delicate cake-like cookies are glazed with icing and topped with colorful candy sprinkles. They have a mild anise flavoring, which is very typical of Italian baked goods. My family always served these cookies at holidays, weddings or special celebrations, but now that I know the recipe, I can enjoy them all year long!

Total Time 1 hours 10 minutes

Prep Time 40 minutes

Cook Time 30 minutes

Yield 40 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons anise extract (or almond extract)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (may need up to 3 cups)
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 -3 tablespoons milk
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon anise extract
food coloring
decorative candy sprinkles

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • For cookies, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add anise extract.
  • Blend flour and baking powder. Start by adding about 1/3 of these dry ingredients to the butter/sugar in your mixer, then add 1 T. milk. Add another third of the flour and another 1 T. milk. Finally, mix in enough of the remaining flour until your dough is like a brownie batter (it should be softer than a drop cookie dough).
  • Use a 1 T. cookie scooper to make simple round drop cookies - use wet fingers to pat any rough edges OR for an Easter-Egg look, roll 1 T. dough into an elongated ball.
  • Bake cookies 10-12 minutes (they won't be brown but the insides will be soft and cake-like).
  • For icing: mix sugar, milk and extract to make a sugar glaze. HINT: When I make the icing, I make it thick but then I microwave it for 10 seconds so it is thin enough for dipping. Also, I like to divide the mixture in thirds, and then add ONE DROP of food coloring to each batch (pink, green, yellow).
  • Hold cookie in your hand and turn upside down so you can dip the top half in the glaze; turn over and immediately top with sprinkles so they will stick.
  • Allow icing to harden overnight; then store in air-tight containers or freeze.

ITALIAN GRANDMOTHER ANISE COOKIES RECIPE - FOOD.COM



Italian Grandmother Anise Cookies Recipe - Food.com image

This is my grandmother's recipe, but since I didn't have a chance to know her I think of them as my mom's cookies. She uses 5 pounds of flour in her batch because she makes them once a year for the family reunion, so I whittled her recipe down into a 4 dozen batch. The amount of anise is up to you. If you think you didn't add enough anise to the cookies, you can add some to the icing. I like to leave some of them unfrosted since they're pretty darn good plain.

Total Time 35 minutes

Prep Time 25 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Yield 48 cookies, 24 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 -5 teaspoons anise extract
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar
candy sprinkles

Steps:

  • Combine the flour, sugar and heaping tablespoon of baking powder.
  • In another bowl whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil and anise extract.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients. Dough will be sticky, add up to an extra 1/4 cup of flour if needed.
  • Shape cookies as desired (lightly oiled hands will help). One way to do it: roll about 2 tablespoons of dough between hands until you have a rope, fold rope in half and twist. You can also just make little dough patties.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes (this is good for dark nonstick sheets, you might need to bake a little longer if using airbake sheets).
  • Remove from cookie sheets and let cool completely.
  • To make icing, melt butter then add milk. Gradually mix in powdered sugar. Add more sugar or milk until at desired spreading consistency.
  • Frost cookies. Icing will harden quickly so add non-pareils or other sprinkles immediately after frosting each cookie.
