First time I've iced cookies before I put them in the oven, but it works!

Makes about 60

125g butter or non-dairy spread, softened

1/2 c brown sugar or coconut sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 c honey

2 c flour

1 c wholemeal flour


1/4 c butter or non-dairy spread, softened

1/4 c flour

2 tsp water

In a bowl beat the butter for 30 seconds. ADd the brown sugar, baking powder and cardamom and beat until combined. Beat in egg and honey. Sift in flours and mix until combined. Wrap dough in cling film and chill until firm enough to roll out.

Mix icing ingredients in a small bowl until combined.

Preheat oven to 190C. Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

Roll out dough to 4-5mm thick in between 2 sheets of baking paper. Cut out shapes and place on your baking sheets 5cm apart. Pipe or spread icing on top of each biscuit. Sprinkle with sprinkles if desired.

Bake for 7-9 min until golden. Remove from oven and after a few minutes transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
