  1. Cookies!!!!

     

    I have a recipe for Anise cookies that uses anise flavored liqueur. You could probably use Absinthe instead:

     

    Anise Cookie Cordials

     

    2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

    1 cup sugar

    1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

    3 eggs

    2 Tbsp. anise flavored liqueur

    2 Tbsp. water

    1 Tbsp. anise seed

    1 cup semisweet chocolate mini morsels

    1 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds

     

    Combine flour sugar and baking powder, set aside.

     

    In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter together. Add the eggs, anise liqueur, water and anise seed. Beat until well blended. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate morsels and almonds. Cover and chill for a few hours.

     

    Preheat oven to 375F. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. With floured hands, form 4 loaves. Place loaves about 4 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet(s). Bake for 15 minutes.

     

    Remove from oven. Cut each loaf into 1 inch slices. Place slices on cookie sheets and bake for 7 minutes. Turn cookies over, bake again for 7 minutes.

     

    Cool completely on a wire rack.

     

    Tuiles cookies are often flavored with aniseed. There is a delicious Scandinavian Holiday cookie, similar to the aniseed Tuiles.

     

    I could bore you for hours, and my fingers would get tired from typing. But Anise Biscotti is also fantastic. My recipe calls for some brandy and anise extract and anise seeds. You could substitute Absinthe for the brandy.

     

    PM me if you're interested in the Biscotti recipe.

     

    Food, glorious food!


  2. This person has a very poor reputation as a seller of over-priced and sometimes questionable Absinthe and related goods. You will not hear any positive comments about her on this forum.

     

    Do a search on her name. There are many threads with information about her. None of it is positive.

     

    I'm not trying to be unpleasant, but I'd suggest that we all try that SEARCH tool whenever we have a question for the forum. That way you can learn what we've already shared on a given subject. THEN ask any question that wasn't covered in your research or that you want to learn more about.

     

    You'll get your info faster.

     

    And it gets old thrashing and re-hashing the same well-worn subjects so very often. I'm honestly trying to be polite and helpful :)

     

    And I'm real tired of Betty as a subject.
