Greetings to All! I'm looking forward to sharing some TNT recipes with all
of you. In fact, the one I'm posting today is an authentic family recipe
(been around forever) for Italian "Knot" cookies. Hope you enjoy it.

Beat eggs; add sugar, beat thoroughly; add oil; continue to beat; add
vanilla; continue beating, add anisette; continue beating; add orange juice
and pulp; continue beating.

Reserve 2 - 3 cups of flour.

To above mixture, add 2 cups flour, beat; add 3rd cup flour and baking
powder, beat; add 4th cup of flour; stop beating mixture when dough starts
to run up egg beaters. Make a well with remaining flour. Pour mixture into
well and begin kneading, adding flour from circle; knead until dough forms
a soft ball; it is not necessary to use all of remaining flour--the softer
the better. If necessary, oil hands while working dough to keep dough soft
and moist.

Cut into strips, then into 2-inch lengths; shape into knots. Place on
ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
