Instead of being mixed into the dough,
the anise seeds can be sprinkled over
the cookies after they are shaped.

Another way of preparing this dough is
to mix 2 1/2 cups of sugar with six eggs and four yolks in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. whisk the mixture until it is warm and very thick and frothy--about 10 minutes. Remove the bowl from the heat and continue whisking the mixture until cold. Fold in 5 cups of flour and the anise seeds, and continue as below.

To make 100 to 120

2 cups superfine sugar
7 eggs
4 cups flour
3 1/2 Tbsp. anise seeds

Beat the sugar and eggs until thick,
pale and frothy--about 15 minutes.
Gradually fold in the flour and anise
seeds. Let stand for two hours. With a
spoon, drop the dough by heaping
tablespoonfuls onto buttered baking
sheets--spacing the mounds about 2
inches apart.

Let the cookies stand in a warm place
for several hours, or until the surface
of each cookie is smooth and slightly dried.

Bake the cookies in a preheated 350 F.
oven for about 10 minutes, or until they are just beginning to change color.
Remove them from the baking sheets while still warm.
