    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
