Italian Egg Biscuits

 Easter would not be Easter without Italian egg biscuits in our house.  My mother has made them for as long as I can remember. I made  a batch yesterday, using this  recipe from our local paper.  It calls for anise extract, which either you love or hate, no middle ground here!   My mother uses lemon extract, a very subtle flavoring.

 The recipe made a lot!  After eating three yesterday I knew I had to get them out of the house! 

 This batch will go to work with my husband.
 These will be delivered to  friends and family.

I made a few gift tags last month.  They add a little something to the biscuits.  
 Is there a special food you need to have on Easter?   
My favorite chocolate treat has to be malted milk balls!  

 Thanks for visiting!
