Go ahead. You can check. I'll wait. Got a little time to burn today. Or not! Silly me.
But if you don't posses any anise now is the time to acquire some. Splendid stuff!
And any recipe that has been around and still used after 50 years is a winner. This recipe for anise cut-out cookies (Kris Kringle cut-out sugar cookies) has become a family heirloom.
My grandmother cut this recipe for Kris Kringle cut-out cookies from the local newspaper many, many years ago and tweaked it to be her own. We still have the original clip!
It's a family tradition to make these cut-outs for Christmas each year. So we're going local today with a regional recipe that hails from Buffalo, NY originally.
Now it's my pleasure to share our secret with you!
