Frosted Anise Cookies
request from: "kathy johnson" <kath...@hotmail.com> 
does any one have a recipe for zuccarines ( at least that is told what 
they are called and i'm not even sure of the spelling). i was told that 
they 
are an italian cookie. 
 
i don't have anything that is italian, but these are lebanese 
 
 
these are rather soft and puff up quite a bit - rather cake like, in a way 
these are not overly sweet and are best served with a cup of coffee to 
dunk 
them into. the anise extract is an absolute must - it has a licorice like 
flavor. 
 
1/4 cup  unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup  shortening
3/4 cup  granulated sugar
2 large  eggs
3-1/2 cup  flour
7 tsp  baking powder
1/4 tsp  salt
1 Tbsp  anise extract
2/3 cup  light cream or half-and-half
  frosting
1 Tbsp  melted butter
2-1/2 cup  powdered sugar
1/4 cup  milk
1-1/2 tsp  anise extract
  colored sprinkles, to decorate, as needed
 
3 dozen preheat oven to 375f. cream butter, shortening, and sugar until 
smooth. add eggs and beat well. in another bowl, mix together flour, 
baking powder, and salt with a whisk 
 
add flour mixture to butter mixture along with anise extract and cream 
and, using a wooden spoon, mix well. form dough into small balls and place 
onto ungreased cookie sheets several inches apart. flatten slightly (using 
a sugared glass or the palm of your hand) and bake approximately 12 
minutes. remove to racks to cool then frost. for frosting, melt butter 
over low heat in a small pot. add sugar, milk, and anise extract, stir 
until smooth. dunk tops or sides of cooled cookies into the icing, then 
dunk into a dish of sprinkles to decorate. frosting will harden once it 
dries.
