I halved both of these recipes just to try them...Chai Shortbread and Cinnamon-Anise Crisps, both from Cooking Light.
I added: more spice & nutmeg, some honey
Has: a nice crunch
Needs: more flavor, less oven time
Will I make them again? Eh, maybe just to experiment.
(Next day edit): These are very tasty with lemon curd.
I added: a lot more anise seeds, some anise extract
Has: a nice chewy texture, lots of delicious flavor
Needs: less sugar
Will I make them again? Yes!
