HELP: Need cookie recipe

I have been looking for a recipe for Ravasani Cookie for years. It is a hard anise cookie that is boiled then baked. I haven't had any in years and would like to attempt to make them.

    The recipe is close to the bottom, so you have to scroll right down.

      Thank you... I saw that one and I actually have the cookbook that it came from, and know the author of the recipe. Unfortunately there is more to the recipe than what is in the book. For some reason the old Italian ladies like to leave out steps and ingredients. I was hoping to come across a recipe from another source. I have found out in the past that if I can accumulate three or four recopies I can usually find out what is missing from them. I am thinking from my research that this cookie is called something else outside of the Kansas City area, since I can't find it anywhere else.

        Aw, that's too bad. I have never heard of them and my search didn't turn up an awful lot. So I guess all I can do is wish you luck in finding more info about them :)
