To make the biscuits: Combine the flour, butter, icing sugar, egg yolk, baking powder and salt in a bowl; mix well and knead into a dough. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C / Gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2cm thick. Use a rabbit cookie cutter to stamp out biscuits, gathering up the dough and rolling it our again as needed. You should get about 24 biscuits. Place the biscuits on prepared baking trays; bake for 10-15 minutes or until they just turn golden brown. Transfer the biscuits onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before icing.
To make the icing: Combine icing sugar and cream of tartar in a bowl. Add egg white and stir with a spoon to moisten the sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. If icing is too dry, add water teaspoon by teaspoon until smooth and thick.
Fill a piping bag with icing and decorate the biscuits, starting with the outline. Use pink sprinkles for the noses and chocolate sprinkles for the eye.
