    Can you make a strong anise oil from the seeds for baking pizzelles? How would you do that?

      hello m.g., that would be distillation of the essential oil, which requires a still. Why not just put anise seeds on before baking? richo

      The anise oil goes into a cookie batter and is stronger than just seeds themselves. I thought I could crush them and add them to sunflower oil and steep them to use in the cookie batter.
