Recipe Monday – Anisette Cookies

The holiday season means all my grandmother’s recipes get a workout. Here is the recipe for the Italian Christmas Anisette Cookies. Traditionally they’re made in white S shapes. When I was a girl, my mother used to make a huge batch of them, and she split the dough into three sections. She used food coloring to dye one section red, one green. The other section stayed white. Then we would make Christmas shapes out of the dough, like wreaths (intertwined green and white circles) and candy canes (intertwined red and white in a cane shape). We were creative!

This year, it was enough just to make the cookies. No food coloring for me!
