  • Sift the flour and all spices into a large bowl, add the vanilla extract and the butter.
  • Rub with the finger tips until you get a crumb like mixture.
  • Stir in the honey and mix in well with your hands to create a dough.
  • Wrap in cling film and pop in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up a bit.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  • Remove dough from the fridge and roll out on a floured surface to about 5mm/1/4" thick.
  • Use any cookie cutter that you have to hand to cut out whatever shapes you want and stamp words on them too if you have a stamper.
  • Carefully lift the cookies on to the baking sheet and pop it into the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up again.
  • Remove from fridge and put straight into the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until just golden.
  • Take them out of the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
