  • 100g butter
  • 50g honey
  • 1 egg
  • 200g bread flour


Blend together the butter, honey and egg.

Mix in the flour to form a stiff dough.

Tip out onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead together for several minutes.

Roll out the dough to about 1 cm thick, and cut into squares. Optionally, prick the tops with a knife.

Cook in the centre of a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 10 – 15 minutes, until golden in colour.
