Rose's Italian Anise Slices

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes
4 eggs plus 
2 cups sugar
The rind of 1 lemon, grated
4 tsp. anise extract
2 T. lemon juice
1 drop almond extract
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, melted
Mix above ingredients together. 
In another bowl, mix 3 teaspoons baking powder with 5 cups flour.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture.  Mix until well combined. 
Divide dough in half.  With floured hands, shape two loaves placing them on a
parchment paper covered cookie sheet. 

Brush the tops with an egg white.  Sprinkle with colored nonpareil confections.
Makes 2 loaves!


Slice when cool!

You're going to love this old recipe.  Many years ago, I went
to my friend, Rose's house and she taught me how to make this great recipe.
Put them in cellophane bags with a pretty bow for a thoughtful gift.
Keep them in a tin and as company arrives, you'll have something to go with
that hot cup of tea or coffee.

By the way...the house will smell delicious!
