“These wonderful cinnamon-sugar cookies became very popular with my friends at church. My pastor loves them! You will too! Crispy edges, and chewy centers; these cookies are a crowd pleaser for sure!”

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
3. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.

This website gives a basic recipe that can be done 4 different ways. I’ve made the Peppermint Buttons version, and everyone raves about it and can’t get enough. It’s festive and Christmas-y, and best of all easy to make and yields a lot of cookies per recipe. Enjoy!

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?
