Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put powdered sugar into a brown bag.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, spices, and baking soda. Set aside.
Place butter, brown sugar, and molasses in bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment. Beat until light and fluffy -- 3 minutes or so. Beat in eggs and anise. With mixer on low, add flour mixture; beat until just combined.
On a clean surface roll dough into logs--circumference should be about the size of a quarter. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until golden and firm. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Working in batches, place cookies into bag of sugar and shake until well coated. Allow to cool completely on wire rack. Store in airtight container.
