Ya Mamma's Frosted Anise Cookies (Copycat)

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
13 ingredients
3 servings
Adapted from Yankee magazine. Ya Mamma's is an Italian restaurant in Merrimack, NH and these cookies are supposedly served there. These are rather soft and puff up quite a bit - rather cakelike, in a way. These are not overly sweet and are best served with a cup of coffee to dunk them into. The anise extract is an absolute must - it has a licorice like flavor.
