Many cooks use anise seed recipes for special sweet treats. There are many desserts that feature this wonderful seed, including anise seed cookies. Many anise seed cookies are as simple as a classic sugar cookie base with anise seed added, turning the sugar cookies into anise seed cookies. This is an excellent way to feature the anise seed, because the buttery cookie does not compete with the licorice flavour of the anise seed and lets it shine The best way to try it is in a slow braise of beef. Start with a base of broth, then add onions, soy sauce and aniseed. If you like, add some Sichuan peppercorns, too.
