Anise Cookies By: Susan S.
I am a mom of an 18-year-old son who has CF. This is a favorite family recipe of a dear neighbor and friend who wants to do something to support us by helping in the battle against CF.

Combine remaining dry ingredients; reserve half (to add by hand).
Alternate, adding flour mixture to butter mixture, while alternating with sour milk.
Beat well with electric mixer.
Add remaining flour mixture by hand (batter will be thin and sticky).
