These cookies have great flavor with a lot of natural sweetness from the anise. I felt that the chocolate added no pizzazz, but did add calories, and in later batches I didn't bother with it. These also last a long time in an airtight container (they still tasted good a month later!), and are great for mailing in a package because they don't get stale and hold up well.

Absolutely tasteless. Too sticky. Needs more flour. You really need the chocolate to have any taste at all. Will not make again.

These came out beautifully. I baked them a little less both times, because I found they browned a bit too much otherwise. Nice mild anise flavor. I omitted the chocolate so they can be dipped in coffee.

Excellent flavor, easy to make. The dough was incredibly sticky, however, which made it hard to shape. I oiled my hands before shaping the 2nd batch and it worked great.
