Makes: 24

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 cup high quality olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • powdered sugar to decorate
  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  2. Grind the fennel seed to a powder in a mortar or use a spice blender.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour with the sugar, fennel seed powder and the salt.
  4. Add the olive oli. Knead until you have a smooth dough.
  5. Roll out dough on a flat surface and cut with a cookie cutter. I use simple shapes because the dough is very brittle.
  6. Place cookies on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  7. Place on a cooling rack and decorate with powdered sugar.
