|Yeast||1⁄4 Ounce (1 Package, Active Dry/Compressed)|
|Warm water||2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)|
|Anise seed||1⁄2 Teaspoon, crushed|
|Olive oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Salad oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Grated lemon peel||1⁄4 Teaspoon|

Dissolve yeast in warm water; add crushed anise seed, salad oil, olive oil, lemon peel, salt, sugar, and 1 cup flour.
Beat until smooth.
Add pine nuts and another 1 1/4 cups flour, or enough to make a stiff dough.
Turn out on a floured board and knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes), using additional flour as needed.
Place dough in greased bowl, cover with damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down, divide dough in half.
Cut each half into 20 equal-sized pieces; roll each piece, using palms of hands, into a 7-inch length.
Place parallel on greased baking sheets about 1/2 inch apart.
Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes; brush with slightly beaten egg, and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt.
Bake in a 325° oven for 30 minutes, until lightly browned.
