Bev's Licorice Snaps

These are from my Mom. (also here) Got raves at Mom's n Tots this morning with this recipe. These are great served with tea.

1 c. margarine, softened
1 c. brown sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 Tbsp. anise seed
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients, blending well. (chopped up the anise seed a bit with a knife first (mortar and pestle would be great!)) Divide dough in half, shape into two 10 inch rolls, flattening the sides to make square cookies. Wrap in wax paper and chill for at least 4 hours. Slice into 1/4" slices, place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (should be just slightly brown around the edges).
