Tip: if you don't like to eat liquorice you will not like the smell of these while they are cooking or the taste. P.S. if you eat to many the same outcome happens too.
1 dozen eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups oil (canola is good)
2 tbsp. spirit of anise (bought at drug stores)
Flour a cup at a time (about 3-4 cups)
use a large mixing bowl and beater. beat all 12 eggs, sugar, oil, and anise together well. Then you are going to add a cup of sugar at a time. The batter should be a littlw thicker then a pancake batter. Drop onto the hot iron using a tablespoon measurer (its the best thing)
Remove after they get golden or light brown (like waffles) becarful they go dark fast!! and place on brown paper bag or brown paper and let cool.
Keep in a dry cool place ( I usually keep in a box lined with wax paper or saran wrap about 20 and tie with ribbon as a gift.) Becarful they are fragile when they are cold.
Serves 11 dozen per batch.
