In a medium sized saucepan, add water, sugar, crushed anise seeds and salt, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and allow to cool. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Using a pastry blender or fork, blend the butter and flour mixture until it has a coarse and pebbly appearance. Make a well in the center of the flour, add the egg and mix well. Slowly pour in the syrup while stirring to form a soft dough. The dough should feel slightly sticky to the touch but not excessively gluey. If the dough is too sticky, add a tablespoon or more of flour. Cut pieces of the dough and roll them into 2-inch sized balls. On a lightly floured board, roll out each ball to approximately 7 to 8 inches in length and 4 or more inches in width. Use a knife to make 2 lengthwise 4-inch parallel slashes in the center of each sugar leaf. Be sure to dust the board with flour between rollings to prevent sticking. Heat oil in a large skillet and fry 1 to 2 sugar leaves at a time, for approximately 30 seconds on each side until lightly browned. Drain onto paper towels. Allow to cool slightly and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm. File ftp://ftp.idiscover.co.uk/pub/food/mealmaster/recipes/mmkah001.zip
