Couldn't sleep and had the urge for some cookies. The only cookies remaining in our house were some rum balls and I'm not too fond of them. Sooo,
Here's the recipe if anyone is interested:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon anise seed
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted margarine or butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
In a small mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and anise
In a large bowl beat the eggs with electric mixer on high for 4 minutes or until thick and lemon colored. With the mixer on medium, gradually beat in the sugar. Then beat in the melted margarine or butter and vanilla. Add the flour mixture. Beat on low speed until combined.
Place a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter slightly off center toward back of grid. Close lid. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. (For a nonelectric iron, bake for 30 to 60 seconds or till golden, turning once.) Turn wafer out onto a paper towel to cool. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes about 18.
