INGREDIENTS


* 6 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups lard
* 1 1/2 cups white sugar
* 2 teaspoons anise seed
* 2 eggs
* 1/4 cup brandy
* 1/4 cup white sugar
* 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
DIRECTION


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl, and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the lard and 1 1/2 cups sugar until smooth. Mix in the anise seed, and beat until fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Add the sifted ingredients and brandy, and stir until well blended.

3. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 or 1/4 inch thickness, and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. The traditional is fleur-de-lis. Place cookies onto baking sheets. Mix together the 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops of the cookies.

4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
