Christmas Cookie Fail

My mother decided she wanted to make Christmas cookies, like the Italian ones my grandmother used to bake.  In the recipe box, we found three different versions each with a slight variation.  3/4 cup sugar... 1/2 cup sugar... 4 cups flour... maybe 4 1/2... 1 teaspoon anise, or perhaps 2.  Whatever it was that came out of the oven was beyond fail.  Not sweet, couldn't even find a hint of anise flavoring, and very dry.  So sad.  And instead of maybe we can try again next weekend, my mother said, "Better luck next year."

Wah wah.
