This flavorful icing pairs well with our Anise Cookie Recipe. Sprinkle with colored sugar or nonpareils for an added pop of color!
- 2 cups Confectioner's Sugar
- 3 tablespoons Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon Anise Extract
- dash Salt
DIRECTIONS:Whisk together all ingredients until smooth. The mixture should be just pour-able, but very thick. Add up to 1 tablespoon more milk if needed, and a few drops more anise extract to taste, if desired. Use a spoon to drizzle the icing onto the cookies and spread with a small spatula or butter knife. Leave a border around the edges of the cookies; the icing will spread.

I added double the anise, and was perfect. For the first time in years, this recipe gave me just the right amount of icing for one batch of Anise Cookies. Highly recommend.
Perfect icing for gingerbread cookies
Jun 12, 2023 | By James Zemboy
60 years ago when I was about 10 years old, "Iced Anise Bars" were a treat from the grocery store. They were bar-shaped, thick, soft gingerbread cookies in a cellophane package; half of them had white icing on them and the rest were pink. I'm going to use this icing on mine, which will be round. They will be my special treat and a nostalgic one.
