Christmas Anisette Cookie Recipe

These cookies are a family favorite, especially with our son, and I’m thrilled to share the recipe with you today.


Unsalted Butter


All-Purpose Flour

Baking Powder


Kosher Salt

Anise Extract

Powdered Sugar


Gather Your Ingredients and Let's Get Started!

With their sweet and slightly licorice-like essence, Italian Anisette Cookies, are a perfect addition to your Holiday Cookie Tray.

Anise is a spice and a member of the parsley family. However, both plants contain the organic compound, anethole, which gives it its flavor. Fennel also contains anethole.

Making the cookies

Mix the wet and dry ingredients as directed then scoop onto a cookie sheet and bake.

Bake, Cool and Ice

Once your cookies are baked, cool then, poor icing over and decorate with sprinkles.

Decorate & Enjoy!

I opted to stick with red and green for the holiday season.
