    1. Mix butter, sugar, egg, treacle and water thoroughly. Sift together flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, bicarbonate of soda and spices and blend in. Chill dough until firm.
    2. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas Mark 6.
    3. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 5cm (2 in) apart on lightly greased baking tray. Bake about 8 minutes, or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly. While slightly warm, cover with icing.
