Anise Biscuits recipe

These simple little biscuits are German in origin and they are really distinctive in flavour. Fennel seed is used to flavour the biscuits, which is a little unusual, but it yields spectacular results.


  • 250g plain flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp. fennel seed

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

  2. Beat the eggs and sugar together for 15 minutes using an electric whisk.

  3. Stir in the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and fennel seed.

  4. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a baking tray.

  5. Bake for 15 minutes and leave to cool before serving.

Some anise biscuit recipes state that the biscuits always turn out better if you use smaller eggs - so try following that small tip when you make this recipe. This recipe yields 36 biscuits.
