The method of making anise biscuits includes the following:
Preheat the oven to 180°C in advance.
Mix the butter and sugar together until you get a creamy consistency.
Add the eggs, milk, anise extract, and vanilla, and continue mixing until you get a light and fluffy mixture.
In a separate bowl, add three cups of flour and baking powder until completely combined, then add to the liquid ingredients.
Keep mixing until you get a homogeneous texture, adding more flour until you have a dough with minimal stickiness.
Roll the dough into a circular shape before placing it on the baking tray and bake for ten to twenty minutes or until the edges are browned.
After the cookies have cooled completely, mix 2 cups of powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons of water and ¼ tablespoon of anise extract. Dip the cookies in this mixture, then decorate with colored sugar.
