Description

Tortas de aceita, otherwise known as Spanish olive oil tortas are a light, crisp, sweet, flaky biscuit made with olive oil and shaped like a torta. This recipe for Olive Oil and Anise Cakes also uses olive oil to make these sweet biscuits but adds the unique flavor of star anise to create something unique and different. Sesame seeds add a crunchy texture element to this sweet thin biscuits. If you find the slight olive oil taste too much for you, you can substitute butter.
