Star anise is usually sold in the supermarket spice section. To grind it, put the whole spice in a spice or coffee grinder. I find that 1/8 tsp. isn’t detectable and 1/4 tsp. is overpowering, thus the “scant 1/4 tsp.”

Have made this a few times now and everyone likes it. I use a little more star anise than called for and for us it is not too much. I´m not so sold on the corn meal in the topping but my friends all like it so I guess it will stay. Makes a very good dessert for not much work, so is a keeper.
I have made this for years. Instead of peaches and the anise I substitute blueberries and it is amazing.
Delicious and easy to follow directions however I'm struggling to taste any hint of star anise and I was more generous in the dough and still can't quite find it.
