Ingredients
  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
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs), unsifted
  Pine nuts 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Coarse salt 2 Tablespoon
Directions

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.
