1-3/4 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/8 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Butter, sweet; softened
1 cup Sugar
2 Egg
1 tbsp Lemon peel; grated
1-1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Almond extract
1-1/2 cup Pine nuts
2 tsp Anise seed (crushed)

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Cream margarine, add sugar, beat in eggs one at a time until light. Add flour mixture and blend well. Blend in lemon peel and vanilla and almond extracts. Mix in pine nuts and anise seed. Mix until just blended.

Cover dough and chill about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour 2 baking sheets. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Flour hands and roll each piece into 1-1/2" round log. DOUGH IS STICKY. Put 2 logs on each baking sheet - spaced about 4" apart. Bake until tops are lightly browned or about 18 minutes.

Cool slightly on baking sheets. Transfer logs to a cutting board. Cut crosswise into 1/2" thick slices. Put cut side down on baking sheet. Bake about another 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
