How to do it

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. CREAM the butter, using a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the anise extract.
  3. ADD the Vava Vanilla Dilettoso mix to the wet mixture, and mix on low speed or with a wooden spoon, until combined. Don't over-mix the batter.
  4. SPOON one tablespoon portions of dough, and roll each one into a ball. Place on the baking sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  5. BAKE for about 10 minutes, or until just lightly browned. Be careful not to over bake. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Remove to cooling racks to cool completely before glazing.
  6. MAKE the glaze: Place 1 cup of powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons whole or 2% milk, and one teaspoon of anise extract in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth and no lumps remain.
  7. PLACE the wire rack with the cookies over a baking sheet. Dip the top of each cookie in the glaze, let any excess drip off, and return to the wire rack.
  8. TOP with sprinkles. Let the icing set for at least 10 minutes before serving.
