Preheat oven to 375 F.
Melt butter and shortening together. Add the Truvia® Baking Blend; mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the anise extract.
Sift or whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture gradually. If the dough is too sticky to roll in the palm of your hand, add flour until firmer, but it should be very soft. Roll dough in small ballsand place on parchment lined insulated baking sheets.
Bake for 6-8 minutes (the bottom should be lightly browned but the tops should remain light). Remove cookies to wire rack and cool completely before glazing.
