Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and honey in a bowl. Add egg yolk and beat to combine. Add flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Stir to combine. Turn out onto a floured surface and gently knead until smooth.

3. Using a rolling pin, roll dough on a lightly floured bench until 5mm thick. Using a 7cm pastry cutter, cut 20 discs from dough. Using a 2cm round cutter, cut a disc from the centre of each biscuit. Place on prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden and leave to cool on the trays.

4. Combine icing sugar and enough water to form a firm spreadable icing. Spread icing over biscuits. Add sprinkles. Serve when set.
