Yield: 3 dozen cookies
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon anise extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder (Yes, really. These guys will puff up. And they are supposed to be airy, almost like a biscuit, but not quite.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Glaze Ingredients:* 1 cup powdered sugar
Milk (eyeball it, no specific measurement, you choose your consistency)
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Beat together butter and sugar until creamy.
Stir in anise and lemon
Add eggs. Blend.
Add dry ingredients – blend together.
The dough should be almost crumbly, but when you roll it in your hand it stays together.
Form dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. (Try not to get much bigger than 1 inch)
Bake for 15 minutes.
Cool and glaze.
