1 lb powdered sugar (3 1/2 - 4 cp)
4 eggs (room temp)
1 T + 1 tsp butter
1 T corn syrup
1 lb flour (3 1/2 cp)
1 1/2 tsp anise oil

Beat eggs till light yellow and thick. Add sugar, beating well after each addition. Add remaining ingredients.

Roll out with a normal rolling pin to about 3/8" thick. Dust dough with cornstarch to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin. Roll out with springerle rolling pin to about 1/4" thick. Cut apart and place towels to dry out overnight. Transfer cookies to greased cookie sheets.

Bake at 300º - 325º for about 15 minutes. They should be white, not yellow or brown.

These are soft. If you would like them hard, leave out the butter and corn syrup.
