How to make Anise Seed Rolls:

  • Cover with a clean cloth, and allow rising until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile pour water into a pan and bring it to a boil over high heat.
  • Dip each roll quickly into the boiling water, and return to baking sheet.
  • Bake rolls in preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes and serve .
