Heat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Place flour in a large bowl. Heat honey until very warm; add to flour and mix well. When cooled down, add sugar, egg yolk, butter, bicarbonate of soda, mixed spice and a pinch of salt. Mix well to form a dough.
Knead the dough and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Roll out to 1/2cm thick. Cut out various shapes using your favourite cookie cutters.
Transfer the cookies to a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow to cool on a wire rack before decorating.
