Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl to blend.
Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter in a large bowl to blend.
Beat in the eggs 1 at a time.
Add the flour mixture and beat just until blended.
Add the ground anise seed and mix well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Form the dough into a 16-inch-long, 3-inch-wide log.
Transfer the log to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake until light golden, about 30 minutes.
Cool 30 minutes.
Place the log on the cutting board.
Using a serrated knife, cut the log on a diagonal into 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick slices.

Bake the cookies until pale golden, about 15 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely.
