1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 tsp anise oil
1 cup sugar 1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg 1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup syrup 1/4 tsp ginger
1 cup sour cream 1/2 tsp soda
7 1/2 cups flour
Dough should be quite stiff. Shape into rolls (snakes?) about the size of a nickel and chill or freeze. Cut into thin slices and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
I added half of the flour and then the rest of the ingredients before I added the rest of the flour. This is because the batter gets really stiff and I wanted the flavor ingredient to mix all of the way through.
