Anise Vanilla Biscotti

110 g melted margarine
350 ml sugar
3 eggs
250 ml milk
1 litre flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp anise seed, ground

Mix margarine, sugar and eggs. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add half to the egg mixture, then half the milk. Follow with the rest of the dry ingredients, and then the rest of the milk as well as anise and vanilla.

Add more flour if the dough seems too sticky. Shape two or three long longs, flatten slightly and place on baking sheets. Bake at 175°C for about 25 minutes. Let cool a little bit, cut into diagonal slices and place back in the oven for about 20 minutes. They should be a bit dried out and crunchy - they will get crisper as they cool.
