Glazed Bizcochito Stars
Ingredients
  • 1  vanilla bean, split
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  anise seeds
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 2 1/3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  recipe  Cinnamon Sugar
  • 1  recipe  Lemon Glaze
Directions

1. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean pod with the tip of a small sharp knife; discard pod. In a food processor combine vanilla bean seeds, sugar, anise seeds, and lemon peel; cover and pulse several times with on/off turns until combined.

2. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar mixture and lemon juice. Beat until fluffy, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in flour and salt until combined. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.

3. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough at a time to 1/2 inch thick. Using a 2- to 2 1/2-inch star cookie cutter, cut out dough; reroll scraps as necessary (if necessary, chill scraps before rerolling). Sprinkle cutouts with Cinnamon Sugar. Place cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are firm to the touch. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely. Spoon Lemon Glaze evenly over cookies. Let cookies stand until glaze is set.
