Änis Chräbelis - Swiss Aniseed Cookies

I know I shouldn't eat cookies, trying to control my weight but, hey, it was Christmas and I missed a few cookies, especially aniseed ones, so I googled a recipe and found one on a Swiss cooking site, so I set about making some of those delicious cookies and in all modesty I can say they were a success, especially with Diane, Carol and David.

After I made the dough and let it stand overnight as per instructions, I made rolls about 15mm in diameter.

Being Swiss, I used a rouler to cut pieces 70mm long

Again as per instructions I cut slots in the rolls

Shaped them into the right shapes

And placed them into the oven for baking.

I would love to show you the final product, but we ate them, sorry. But they were delicious.


  1. Swiss precision - what else would viewers expect????
    Pity the 4 of your were starving and nobody saw the end result! I guess the diet was in place and now it ended rather abruptly???
    I look forward to a sample, one of these days - I am NOT on a diet?
    I may look large but it is the rotund ageing process so I have been told, and I am sticking to this theory. End of subject on that!
    PS: Next time at least show the viewers the end result and don't gobble so fast!

  2. The end result is my fat tummy. They were delicious.
