Italian anise cookies !! These cookies MUST be in your Christmas cookie tray! Are you not a fan of anise? Use your favorite extract for a new flavor!

You guys! These cookies are so soft and delicious! They have been a staple in our family since I made them about 20 years ago. Of course, you will want to share these amazing surprises! They make great gifts for neighbors … or they would be great on a cookie sheet with other cookies or candy.

Anise, in case you don't know it, tastes like black licorice. From what I understand, some people really love the taste, and others not so much. I don't think there is any middle ground in that flavor. I personally love these cookies, they are a real treat for Christmas. We even make them for Easter sometimes!

I love all tasty treats this time of year! Cookies and delicious desserts seem to be flooding the blogging world! I really love sharing traditional Christmas cookies and especially love those that maybe other people don't share often. It's nice that most of that is in virtual life – watching and drooling is calorie-free! 😉 These Italian anise cookies are super easy and super soft! I love how swollen they are!

If you are not really a fan of black licorice, you can substitute your favorite extract flavor instead of anise extract! 😊 Be sure to use a regular teaspoon to measure cookies. You will want a little bit of a scoop. For soft cookies, be sure to roll the dough into balls. When you dip these cookies in the frosting, you'll want to add the unparalleled ones right after: this glaze is thick and hardens quite quickly.
