My German grandmother used to make these every Christmas. She said using small eggs was a must.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon anise seed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Combine the sugar and the beaten eggs and continue to beat for 15 minutes. Stir in the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and the anise seeds.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes.
