Regina Cookies are well complimented with a cup of coffee. The anise combines nicely with the nutty flavor of the sesame seeds making for a pleasant treat for breakfast or dessert. A special note when gathering your ingredients: I bought pre-roasted sesame seeds because that's all I could find at the grocery store in the quantity needed for this recipe. I recommend not using roasted sesame seeds if possible because the result was an overpowering, almost too salty tasting sesame flavor. Wife really loves them, but to me the sesame and anise could be balanced a little better.
