1 tablespoon anise seeds
2 egg yolks
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon


Whip lard until creamy. Mix wine, sugar, cinnamon and anise; add to lard and mix with wooden spoon. Add egg yolks; mix well. Add sufficient flour to make a soft dough; roll out l/2-inch thick. Cut in desired shapes and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees F; check often to prevent burning. Mix coating ingredients. Dredge cookies in this mixture while still warm.
