Pre-heat oven to
350-F degrees and select a pair of cookie sheets for baking.
Mix together eggs, sugar, oil, anise, and salt. Sift flour and
baking powder together and add the dry ingredients to the wet
mixture. Blend until a soft dough is formed.
Pinch off walnut-sized pieces of dough. Roll between fingers
to lengthen, and tie each into a knot.
Continue pinching, rolling, and knotting dough for each
cookie. (If the dough becomes a bit sticky, simply keep
your fingers well-dusted with flour.)
Bake for about 12 minutes, or until cookies are light
brown in color.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
Store in an airtight container.
