-Activate the yeast in the water by mixing them. Let the mix rest for 5 minutes.
-Mix together the flour, Oliflix extra virgin olive oil, water and yeast preparation, anise spirit, sugar, aniseed, sesame seed and salt.
-Knead the dough for around 10 minutes on low speed or until you achieve medium gluten development.
-Cover the dough and let it ferment for 1 hour.
-Once it has fermented divide it into small balls.
-One at a time, take each ball and put it on the palm of your hand, press it with the other hand and extend it until you achieve a thickness of 3-4 mm. Because it is done by hand, some areas will be thinner than others, but this is what you want to achieve. Do not use a rolling pin to extend the dough or you will leave all the oil to escape from the dough.
-You can then transfer it to an oven pan lined with some greaseproof paper and sprinkle enough granulated sugar on top.
-Cook in a 210C oven for about 10 minutes or until you get some caramelization of the sugar in the thinnest part of the cakes.
-Let it cool on a rack.
