  • Add anise oil (optional) small amount for it is very strong, to 1/2 cup of the milk and add to flour mixture. Gradually add more of the milk mixing until dough holds together.

  • Pull off small portions of dough and roll between palms of the hands into a roll about finger size. Roll in sesame seeds.

Cut into 2 inch strips, place on ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove, cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
