These cookies resemble biscotti, but are more tender, light & excellent with coffee.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon anise extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until they are light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat for about 3 minutes. Stir in the oil and anise extract. Fold in the dry ingredients until well blended. Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
When the pan cools slightly, cut the cookie down the middle, lengthwise. Cut each half into 1/2 inch slices. Place slices onto a cookie sheet and return to the oven long enough to brown on each side, like toast. Store in a tightly covered container.
