How to Make:

  1. Combine the butter and honey in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until mixture begins to simmer. Remove from heat and set aside for 15 minute to cool.
  2. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a large bowl Add the honey mixture and milk and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or until mixture is firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Divide dough into 4 portions. Roll each portion into a 1.5cm-thick log, about 60cm long. Cut each log into 6cm lengths and place on the lined trays, allowing room for spreading.
  4. Bake in preheated oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside on trays to cool completely.
  5. Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg white and lemon juice in a small bowl until soft peaks form. Add the icing sugar and stir to a smooth paste. Divide icing into 2 portions. Add red colouring to a portion and green to another portion. Spread red and green icing over the top of each biscuit. Set aside for 30 minutes to set.
