Ok…here is one of my holiday favorites! I used to make them with my grandpa every year. My family has a lot of german in it, so I have a bunch of German recipes.

German Candy (Anise Cookies)
mix together:
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
Have anise seeds spread out on the bottom of two large cookie sheets

After all ingredients are mixed well, roll out and cut into diamond shaped pieces. Place diamonds on cookie sheets, pressing slightly down so that the anise seeds stick to the bottom of cookies.  Let sit 6 hours or over night.
Cook 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

1 lb. of hamburger
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can diced tomatoes (I prefer the ones with the little pimentos in them but it does make it a lot hotter)
1 can chile beans
1 cup of frozen corn
1 can of wateer

Serve with corn chips, sour cream, and shredded cheese


Brown the hamburger with the onion.    (I always rinse the hamburger with hot water when it’s done…I hate grease)
THen, simply dump everything else into a crock pot or a pot on the oven to heat until slightly boiling and serve.   It’s even better the next day as leftovers.
