1/2 teaspoom powdered anise seed  
1/2 teaspoon white pepper  

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Sift the flour, measure, then sift again with all the dry ingredients together. Cream the butter and sugar together until light. Add in the lemon zest. Mix in the dry ingredients. Add in enough milk to make a soft dough. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into a square roughly 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 3 inch squares and place on lightly buttered cookie sheet.
