Here is a photo I've taken of my coffee treat for the day - Stella D'oro Anisette Sponge Cookies, an Italian flavorful cookie. I dunk them in coffee to soften them while I savor a burst of flavorful anise and coffee combined in a tasty cookie. Yum! What's your preferred coffee or tea treat?

"Pandesal" is the common bread in Philippines that we put in our cup of coffee. Hehe! :)

Anisette is an Italian liquor that was famous in the fifties, never heard of this cake in Italy.

@LadyDuck My mom always bought Stella D'oro Anisette Cookies as a snack when I was a child and I love dipping them in milk. The texture is toasty, lightly sweet and has anisette flavor. They are crunchy when eaten plain so I often dunk them in coffee or a beverage to soften them. I love Anisette Italian liquor and I often bake cupcakes with this liquor...

@Micmac It is strange, I believe that it's almost impossible to find Anisette in Italy now. It's a long time that I do not see this liquor in Italian shops.

@LadyDuck oh yes, that is strange since anisette flavor is an Italian traditional liquor.

@allknowing The name Stella D'oro has the meaning of 'star of gold' in Italian. The company makes breadsticks, Swiss Fudge, biscotti and Margherite cookies. The sponge Anisette ones I like better because of the anisette flavor which is so tasty.

@Micmac For foreigners like me those names sound like Greek just as 'rumali roti' would mean to you

@rakski Oh, it is, so scrumptious. Yes, coffee goes great with a cake or pie treat.

@arthurchappell They taste good plain too, a bit crunchy like soft toast. Once you taste them, you'll be begging for more! The anisette flavor is quite addictive. They go good by dipping it in milk.

The cookies look yummy. However, instead of dipping it in my coffee, I would like to munch it straight away. I do not feel like dipping anything in coffee. I like it plain.

Yes, they are delicious cookies @dpk262006 You can eat these cookies without dipping them coffee as they taste really good plain. Sometimes I dip them in milk or orange juice but I do have them plain as well. It's just a matter of taste. Once you've tasted the anisette flavor, you can't resist them.

@Micmac - You are highlighting so much about these cookies that I feel like taking it immediately (provided, it is available here at my place).

I like both coffee and hot tea. It depends on the day as to what I am in the mood to drink.

@LeaPea2417 That's great you enjoy both coffee and tea. Do you like to have a coffee or tea treat also? I'm really fond of coffee and tea, though I drink more coffee than tea essentially.

@just4him Tea is such a comforting drink. I love just about all kinds of tea. Lemon and honey tea is one of my favorites with or without a treat.

I eat those without any coffee and I drink coffee without adding anything on the side.

@sharon6345 Aren't they great? I like these cookies plain without coffee too. I have them plain or dunk them in coffee, milk, or juice to soften it. They can be used for making Italian rum cakes with a pudding spread.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX Oh I hope you can try them someday. It is the perfect complement to have with a good cup of coffee.

@sofssu These anisette cookies taste real great with milk or just plain. They are lightly sweet, a nice treat to have around. I like them ever since I was a kid with milk. But now I like them more with coffee. m-m-m I'll take a brownie anytime!
