I really enjoyed this recipe as did my guests. It was super easy and seems like an upscale dinner party dish. I added a little cinnamon and sugar on top of the yogurt and it was PERFECTION. I should also mention that star anise isn't easy to find, so I purchased anise seeds instead (spice aisle) and used about 1 teaspoon and it worked just fine.
