Is it true that German anise cookies need to be stored for weeks to taste good?

Question by smeagolrocks: Is it true that German anise cookies need to be stored for weeks to taste good?
I saw a recipe for German anise cookies. It says that once I take the cookies out of the oven, I need to store them in a container right away. The cookies would be ready in 8 hours but taste better if I wait for several weeks. Is it true? Do they not go bad?
