  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, pour in ½ cup milk. Microwave for 30 seconds. Check with a thermometer to make sure the temperature is not over 90 degrees.
  • Add yeast, stir and let this mixture rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Combine ¾ cup sugar, salt, lemon zest and orange zest in the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment. Mix on low for about 30 seconds.
  • Next add the cinnamon, flour and anise seeds then stir together.
  • Cut butter into cubes then mix in with the dry ingredients until the butter combines with the flour mixture and the combination becomes crummy.
  • Pour yeast and milk into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
  • Also add the eggs and mix for about 30 seconds then add the baking powder, sprinkling evenly over the dough.
  • After the dough is mixed and the ingredients are incorporated, fold in raisins and nuts.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured flat surface and roll to about ¼ inch thick.
  • Cut into diamond shapes and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes just until the cookies begin to turn a golden brown.
  • Let them completely cool before icing.
  • To make the colored sugar, measure 1 cup granulated sugar into a bowl and add a couple drops of gel food coloring. The best way to mix this is with your hands but the gel will stain your fingers. If you prefer, you can use a spatula instead.
  • To make the icing add egg whites, lemon juice and powdered sugar into a bowl.
  • Whisk until fully combined.
  • Dip cookies into icing to coat and top with colored sugar.
  • Each batch makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
