Oh the yummiest cookies

I wanted to get this down because goodness they are yummy - they're like a cross between a cookie and a cake - especially when done correctly. My SILs mom makes THE best ones - they're sooooo soft and have such a high anise flavor (yummy! IMO).

Genetti cookies:

1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup white sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons anise extract or anise flavouring
3 cups all purpose flour


Beat eggs with oil and sugar 5 minutes
Combine the milk and anise flavour
Combine the flour and salt and baking powder
Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients
Make a soft, very soft dough - soft but not sticky. If you add too much flour they will be dry
Roll pieces of dough into finger lengths and widths and shape into a figure 8
Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet
Bake 350 for 8-10 minutes, just until bottoms are slightly golden. Tops should have no colour
Frost with a glaze of icing powder, anise flavour and a drop of milk.

Will be doing these with little tyke soon and hopefully they turn out like my SILs mom's! Mmmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about them.
