Anise ToastAnise Toast-closeup“If you like the flavor of anise, treat yourself to this easy biscotti! There are only four ingredients!   It really is more of a toast since it is harder than a typical biscotti.  It is great eaten plain or dunked in coffee, tea, or milk.   Of course, the homemade anise toast is so much better than the kind you buy in the store.   One is only 61 calories or 2 Weight Watcher Points.   Enjoy!”

    If you love the store bought ones, try these! Healthier, and more delicious! I buy the McCormick spices in the glass jars and that brand carries anise seeds (expensive, but they last). There is another brand that I cannot think of the name, a red label, and they sell it too (same high price). Let me know how you do with these. I think you will love them!
