Anisette Cookies


Cream shortening, sugar and eggs together until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, vanilla and milk and mix on slow in a mixer. When the dough is pretty much formed in a glob, stop and roll into small balls (about 1 tsp at a time) and place on a cookie sheet. The dough should be really sticky, so it is important to keep flouring your hands as you are rolling the balls of dough.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes and cover with frosting.

For Frosting:
Combine the sugar and the flavoring. Add milk gradually until the frosting is the right consistency. Pour the frosting over the warm cookies.
