Serves To:USMetric
2 Cup(c)  unbleached flour
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  almond extract
1 Teaspoon(t)  vanilla extract
1 Teaspoon(t)  orange or lemon rind, grated
1 Teaspoon(t)  cinnamon
2 Tablespoon(T)  anise seeds
1 Cup(c)  blanched almonds, ground
2   eggs
1/4 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1/3 Cup(c)  olive oil
1 Cup(c)  sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together sugar, oil and salt in a mixing bowl. Add one egg at a time, beating after each addition. Add ground almonds, anise seeds, cinnamon, grated lemon or orange rind, vanilla and almond extracts. Add enough flour to form a rather stiff dough. Turn out on a floured working surface, knead for 1 minute, then roll into a rope 1 inch wide. With a sharp knife, cut diagonally into 2 inch pieces. Place on a well floured baking sheet and bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in a tin box, at room temperature. Ginetti will keep fresh at least 8 days, the duration of Succot.
