Thought I posted this recipe before, but can't find it--I make these for Christmas sometimes (my late Mom's recipe):

Sift together:

1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream together until fluffy:

1 stick (1/2 c.) butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 TB milk
1 tsp. anise extract

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir in an additional 1/2 c. flour to form stiff dough (total flour in recipe is 2 c.)

Chill 1 hr.

Roll out 1/8" thick on floured surface. Cut with cookie cutter(s).

Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with colored sugar

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 8-10 minutes.

makes 50-60 cookies (more or less depending on how big the cookie cutters are)
