Spice Christmas Biscuits

Makes around 30-40 biscuits.

150g unsalted butter, softened
100g dark brown soft sugar
1 medium egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp honey
300g plain flour
1 tsp ground mixed spice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Icing sugar, for dusting

In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter and sugar with an electric whik, until light
and creamy. Add the egg, honey, flour and spices.

Mix well to form a dough, wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for
at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 190oC, gas mark 5 and line two baking tray's with greaseproof paper. Unwrap
the dough and place between to clean sheets of cling film.

 Roll out to about 1/2 cm and then pick what cutter's you want to use I chose stars, men
and Christmas tree's as that was all I had.

Then place them all on a baking tray and cook for 10-12 minutes (depending on how you
like them), then take them out and leave on a cooling rack.

Once cool sprinkle with icing sugar and they are ready to eat. They last around a week
in an air tight container.
