     1/2 c  Butter, sweet; softened

   Add flour mixture and blend well.  Blend in lemon peel and vanilla
   and almond extracts.  Mix in pine nuts and anise seed.  Mix until
   just blended. Cover dough and chill about 2 hours.
   Preheat oven to 350.  Butter and flour 2 baking sheets. Divide dough
   into 4 pieces.  Flour hands and roll each piece into 1 1/2 inch round
   log. DOUGH IS STICKY.  Put 2 logs on each baking sheet - spaced about
   4 inches apart. Bake until tops are lightly browned or about 18
   minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheets.
   Transfer logs to a cutting board.  Cut crosswise into 1/2 inch thick
   slices.  Put cut side down on baking sheet.  Bake about another 10
   minutes. Cool on wire rack.
