Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Warm the honey gently in a saucepan or in the microwave until lukewarm, then add to the butter mixture. Add the egg and mix well.
  2. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and cloves. Beat into the butter mixture on a low speed until a soft dough forms. Shape the dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap. Rest in the freezer for one hour, or the fridge for 2 to 3 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C. Line two baking trays.
  4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured benchtop to about 5 mm thick, then cut out shapes with a biscuit cutter and place on the prepared trays, well spaced to allow for spreading. Brush with the egg white and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on the baking trays. Store in an airtight container for up to one month.
