Aniseed and honey Pestinos from Estremadura

Total time: 30 to 60 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
- 1 kg / 2 pounds flour
- 250 ml / 1 cup water
- 500 ml / 2 cups olive oil

- zest of half an orange
- honey diluted in water
  1. Bring the water to a boil with the bay leaves, a pinch of aniseed and the orange zest.
