Beat in honey, then egg yolks, and anise extract.
Stir in whole wheat pastry flour and unbleached white flour until well blended.
Chill dough for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Fit a cookie press with large star tube.
Turn dough into press, and pipe cookies onto un-greased baking sheets, lifting press as soon as dough appears on sheet.
Bake for 7 minutes, or until edges and bottom are delicately browned.
Cool on wire racks.
If necessary to reuse baking sheets, they should be cooled first.
To make a fancier cookie for festive occasions, frost tops with Anise Icing, and sprinkle with date sugar.
