Italian Cookies From Angelett
This is an all time Italian family favorite recipe that I have made every year for more than 35 years now. My family and friends just can't get enough!"These are great cookies. They are a part of our Holiday Tradition.
I have tried the italian cookies from the grocery store, there is no comparison.
These are fabulous with coffee for breakfast, or any time of day or night.
I abolutely love them! When I am lucky enough to have them, I always make sure I hide a few for myself. My sis normally makes me help frost them!" - eltamexico

Italian Cookies From Angelett Preparation
BEAT EGGS, ADD SUGAR, MELTED SHORTENING, OIL AND ANISE. ADD BAKING POWDER, SALT AND FLOUR LAST (8-9 CUPS) KNEAD LIGHTLY. ROLL AND SHAPE DOUGH INTO BALLS OR WHAT EVER SHAPES YOU LIKE. BAKE AT 350 FOR 10-12 MINUTES UNTIL LIGHTLY BROWNED.
ICING - 3 - 4 LBS OF CONFECTIONS SUGAR, 1/2 TO 3/4 CUPS MILK AND ANISE TO FLAVOR. I MAKE THIS LIKE A THICK ICING AND DIP MY COOKIES. IF THE ICING GETS TO THICK I PUT IT IN THE MICROWAVE FOR A FEW SECONDS AND IT THINS IT OUT TO GLAZE MORE COOKIES.
This is a very thick batter and needs a good strong mixer, usually the mixer can handle 7 cups of flour, the rest can be folded in by hand.
