Anise Stars

2 1/2 dl wheat flour
1/2 dl sugar (generous)
1 tsp freshly-ground anise (or 1 1/2 tsp powdered anise)
1/2 egg or 1 egg yolk
100 gr butter or margarine

1 dl icing (confectioner's) sugar
1 TBS water or anise liquor
1/2 tsp ground anise
red or green candy colouring
small ball-shaped candies, for garnish

Mix together flour, sugar and anise. Add half an egg (or egg yolk),
and butter in pieces. Stir the dough quickly into smooth paste.
Wrap the dough in foil and let it harden in the fridge for 1 hour.
Roll the dough into a thin (3 millimetres) round (or square). Use
a star-shaped cookie-cutter (mold) to cut out cookies. Transfer
ready cookies onto a cookie sheet. Keep rolling the dough and
cutting stars until all dough is used up. Bake the cookies in a
200C (approx. 415 F.) for 6 - 8 minutes until golden brown. Cool
them an the cookie sheet.

Mix together icing sugar, water (or liqueur) until smooth. (Colour
the frosting green or red). Frost the cookies and garnish them with
miniature candies, if desired. Let the frosting stiffen completely
before transferring cookies into jar or cookie tin.
