This is the final step for the first half of the dough. Tomorrow I will do the same process for the almond flavored dough.
After sitting in the counter from about 10 a.m. til 5 p.m., the anise flavored cookies have all been baked.
For those who have never had them, the top is a bit crunchy, almost like a candy later, while the middle is a bit cakelike.
I love the detail that remains after these cookies are baked.
And the snowman and boy.
Notice even the knots on the stick the snowman is holding. Don’t pay any attention to the intention made by my finger as it almost slipped off the spatula and I had to grab it. 🙂
