 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 c Butter
  • 3 tb Sweet sherry
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 c Flour
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 2 ts Anise seed crushed or 1 tsp.
  • Anise oil or flavoring
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Cinnamon


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar & margarine, sherry & egg in a
large bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the 1/4 cup
sugar & the cinnamon. Divide dough into two balls. Roll out each
ball to 1/4" thick & cut into any shape with cookie cutters. Place on
ungreased sheet. Mix together the sugar & cinnamon & sprinkle on the
cookies before baking. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden.

These cookies are cute made into a cactus shape. Pinch off balls of
dough, one larger than a quarter & 2 the size of a nickel. Roll each
of the balls between your palms to make cigar shape. Flatten the
large one to make the main stem of the cactus. Bend one third of each
of the two smaller ones to make a J shape & attach them at uneven
intervals on each side to make the "arms". Flatten them to match the
trunk & bake.
