    It seems that everyone who doesn't like these cookies didn't use the anise. These are Italian cookies! This is one of my families favorite cookie. I add orange blossom water to the batter as well as the anise. They bake up as perfect little cakes. I then put on the lemon frosting using no water to make it thick. Add sprinkles for the season, and perfect little cakes you can freeze!

    I would not make these again. The dough was very sticky, the cookies were bumpy in shape and I ended up smoothing them out with wet fingers before baking. The cookies taste fine, but a bit dry similar to a biscuit. The icing was too thin and did not add much to the cookies and the color from the sprinkles ran and smeared in the icing. If you plan to make these cookies, I recommend you use the anise extract (I did not) and try a few layers of the icing or using a thicker frosting.

    I made these cookies last year on a whim and I loved them. Now it's not even halloween and I'm craving them. They are not too sweet ; if you like plain cookies, then you'll like these!

    These cookies were wonderful! Light, fluffy and delicious. The lemon icing added a nice touch and gave the cookie a bit more flavor. I loved them and would definitely make them again!

    I was not real impressed with these cookies. They were kind of bland. I used the Anise Extract and you could taste the flavor, but it was just a bland cookie. I probably would not make these again.

    I had high hopes about this recipe but it just didn't win me over. It seemed to be a lot of work for a pretty plain cookie. I didn't try using the anise, which is annoying since it give it as an option. I think with the anise it may have been better or at least NOT forgettable.
