Egg Biscuits

I can't remember an Easter without egg biscuits, they have always been on our Easter table. I am not sure if they are a local tradition, but they are to Easter what gingerbread cookies are to Christmas. It wouldn't be Easter without them. My mother always makes them and we love her recipe. But when I saw this recipe in our local newspaper I thought I would give it a try. My mother uses lemon extract and this recipe called for anise extract instead. Talk about two very different flavors.
What I like about egg biscuits is that they are great for breakfast, a mid day snack or dessert.

Maybe what I like about them, is that they are dipped in white icing and then covered in sprinkles. You have to be sure not to over baked them because they can get dry very quickly.
My daughter took a plate to school and I took this one to a friend's house on Friday night. Everyone liked them. You could definitely taste the anise flavoring in them. I think I like my mom's better! I will make sure I tell her that!

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Denise!!!!

I LOVE egg biscuits! YUM!!!! I always use anise in mine. I'm Italian, I guess that's why. I have made them with lemon extract and love them that way too!

Have a wonderful Easter with your family!!!
