This recipe is great! No fat and you can reduce suger if you want to, and that's what iloved about MUST add vanilla. easy and quick.I substituted anise seeds for ginger.It came out good - 21 Nov 2011


Used different ingredients. Texture is real nice. A good dunking toast. A little less flavourful than I would prefer, but I am a huge fan of Anise. I also made this recipe using Almonds and Almond flavouring and they were terrific also. - 21 Jul 2008


I have used this recipe for years and it is one of our very favourites. Don't forget to crush the anise seed for loads more flavour. - 21 Jul 2008
