From the kitchen of Ann Marie Barkwell.  These are
traditional Italian cookies that are a must with our
family.  For Anise cookies use 1/2 tsp anise & 1
Tbsp vanilla instead of lemon extract.  The easy
way to make these is to either -1-drop them by
spoonfuls to make round cookies -2- pat them into
a pan(s) to make bar cookies.  The traditional way
to make these is to -1- roll them into pencil shapes,
then grab the ends & twist -2- roll into a pencil
shape then tie in a knot -3- shape into a doll or
horse.
Cream:
1 c Crisco
1 c sugar

Add:
4 eggs, one at a time
2 Tbsp lemon extract
1 c  milk
4 c flour
4 tsp b. powder

Combine well.
Add
3/4 c - 1 c more flour

Roll small pieces on a floured board, then twist to
shape.

Bake @ 350 , 10-12 minutes.
Longer for large cookies.

Frost with
confectioner sugar & water icing.
Top with
confetti sprinkles.

I like rolling on a floured (pizza) stone.  Notice how
much flour is on the dough. -1- roll into a pencil  
-2- pinch ends  -3-twist  -4- twist again  -5- done  
-6- baked -7- Made round.  See the cracks?
That's ok.  -8- bottoms are golden, tops
white.                                                 -Stephanie
