In a big bowl mix the strong flour, white sugar, anisette, salt, baking powder and butter (if clarified better).
If the dough is too sticky, you can add one more tablespoon of flour.
We will have a dense dough. Let it cool covered with a cloth for two hours.
Prepare your baking tray.
Once the dough have rest, you can form our marañuelas. I made some portions with my hands forming them on a surface.
Place your marañuelas on your baking tray choosing the forms you like.
Bake them 356ºF (180º C) for around 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. They will brown.
Let them cool on a rack and enjoy.
I know, they are so aromatic with the lemon and a touch of anisette.
