In an electric coffee/spice grinder, finely grind star anise. In a 1 quart to 1.5 quart heavy saucepan, bring anise, sugar, butter, and vinegar to a boil over moderate heat, stirring, and boil 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and stir in flour and a pinch salt until mixture is smooth. Cool dough to room temperature. Form and bake cookies as directed below.

To form and bake lace cookies:

Preheat oven to 350 ℉ and line large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll level 1/2 tsp dough into balls and arrange 4 in apart on baking sheets. Bake cookies in batches in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, 10 minutes, or until cookies are flat and golden. Transfer parchment with cookies to racks to cool. Cool baking sheets and line with fresh parchment between batches.
