(This is a biscotti-type cookie but I found this recipe almost thirty years ago which was many years before I started seeing biscotti cookies being sold at coffee houses. Curiously enough, the name is German and translates as "almond bread" even though walnuts are used. I am not sure if it is the eggs or shortening, but this is also a very dense cookie. It is a wonderful dunker in hot coffee! Also, the dough is very stiff.)

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup melted shortening
3 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon anise seed
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F. In large mixer bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat sugar, melted shortening and eggs until well blended. Add flour, salt and anise seed and continue beating until well mixed. Stir in walnuts.
Divide dough in half. On ungreased cookie sheet, with floured hands, shape each half into a 12x3 inch loaf about 3 inches apart. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until light brown. Remove from oven and immediately cut each loaf crosswise into 1/2 diagonal slices. Turn each slice on its side. Return to oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes more until lightly browned and toasted. Turn at least once during baking to insure even browning. Makes about 4 dozen.
