    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus chilling
    • Cooking time: 8-10 minutes
    • Total time: 18-20 minutes 20 minutes

    Makes: 40

    Ingredients

    150g softened butter
    20g icing sugar
    40g light brown sugar
    3 tsp clear honey
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    Zest of 1 orange
    20g chopped stem ginger in syrup
    1 medium Waitrose Columbian Blacktail Hens egg
    200g plain flour
    50g ground almonds
    1 tsp ground ginger

    For the dip (optional)

    100ml whipping cream
    100g dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
    1 tbsp clear honey

    Method

    1. Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl and cream together with an electric whisk until pale then beat in the honey with the vanilla, orange zest and chopped stem ginger.

    2. Add the egg, and when combined, sieve in the flour, add the ground almonds and ground ginger and mix until it forms a smooth soft dough. Cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge until firm or overnight.

    3. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4 and line 2 or 3 baking trays with baking parchment.

    4. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and using a 5cm round pastry-cutter cut out 40 circles. Transfer them onto the baking trays. Bake in the preheated oven for 8–10 minutes until the edges are golden and still soft in the centre. Cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring onto a rack to cool completely.

    5. (Optional) To make the dip: place the whipping cream into a small sauce pan and bring to the boil. Add in the chocolate and honey and whisk until it becomes smooth and glossy. Serve with the ginger and honey biscuits
