HOW TO MAKE CHRISTMAS BAUBLE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

- 90g honey
- 60g butter
- 375g plain flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1tsp mixed spice
- 1½tsp ground ginger
- 1 large egg, beaten
For the filling and edging:
- Ice cream of your choice, sprinkles or other decorations
For the glacé icing
- 250g sifted icing sugar
Melt the sugar, honey and butter in a saucepan. Mix together the dry ingredients. Allow the sugar mix to cool slightly, quickly mix in the egg then add the dry ingredients. Stir and knead together when cool enough to handle. Heat the oven to 160C fan, gas 4. Roll out the dough and cut out shapes. Bake on baking trays lined with baking parchment for 10-12 minutes and allow to cool on the trays.
To fill, allow the ice cream to soften a little. Put your sprinkles on a flat plate. Sandwich 2 biscuits together with ice cream, running a flat knife around the edge to neaten. Dip into the sprinkles and pop back into the freezer for 1 hour.
To make glacé icing, mix 250g sifted icing sugar with 4tbsp cold water and a squeeze of lemon juice.
