In large bowl, beat eggs with sugar until pale and thickened; beat in butter and aniseed.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture. Stir in almonds.

Divide dough in half. With floured hands, shape each into 12-inch (30 cm) long log. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; press to flatten slightly. Whisk egg white until foamy; brush over tops of logs.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm to the touch and golden, about 25 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely.

With serrated knife, cut each log into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; place, cut side down, on baking sheets. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven, turning once, until firm and golden, about 15 minutes.
