Italian Cookies From Angelett

Ready in 45 minutes

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!"

Servings  

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.

Notes

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.

My family has been making cookies nearly identical to these for generations so I was excited to see a similar recipe to try. However, these did not turn out well. The batter was too dry making it difficult to form balls and making the cookies crack when baked. I will stick to my original recipe from now on. I chalk it up to a good effort and a lesson learned.
