To make the pastry, swift the dry ingredients and mix them with butter. Add the egg yolks and anise water. Knead the pastry until is soft. Form rolls of ½ inch diameter and 9 inches long approximately. Place the rolls in a baking sheet previously greased placing them about an inch from each other. Preheat the oven to 350° F and bake for 25 minutes, until they are golden. Allow to cool.
To make the honey, simmer all the ingredients together approximately for 40 minutes until the mix reaches 238° F, measure with a thermometer. If a thermometer is not available, fill a glass with cold water and toss a drop of the honey and see if the honey becomes a soft ball. On a tray, place a layer of rolls one next to each other. Pour cold honey. Repeat layers of rolls and honey and finish with honey.
