Time to bust out the Italian in me and share a family recipe! Anise is probably one of my all-time favorite flavorings. It’s so bold, and it reminds me of my childhood. Scents and tastes that bring on the nostalgia – can’t get enough of it! These cookies are the perfect addition to your vegan cookie tray, and they are easy to make.
