LOOKING for: Anise Cookie
My grandmother used to make an anise cookie that I loved as a child and the recipe is gone along with her. They were (I think) a drop cookie and when baked the dough separated a bit and the finished cookie had a softer bottom and the top puffed up a little bit and was really hard and crackly, but thin. I googled and googled and can't find anything that resembles them. They were pretty plain and I don't think they had other spices in them, just the anise flavor.
She was German and I was hoping that somebody might know a recipe, thanks!
