  • add   3 tablespoons rum
  • add   1 teaspoon baking powder
  • add   1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • add   1 egg
  • add   1 1/4 cups butter
  • add   2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • add   3/4 cup white sugar
  • add   1/2 teaspoon salt
  • add   2 tablespoons anise seed
  • add   1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves


  1. Place the anise seeds in a small bowl with the rum. Set aside to marinate overnight.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the anise seed and rum. Mix in the egg. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and cloves; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown at the edges. Cool for a few minutes on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
