Whip soft butter with sugar. Then add the egg and finally honey. Add the dried ingredients previously mixed in a bowl, until you get an elastic and homogenous dough. Make a ball and put it to rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Then spread on a floured worktop, the dough must have a thickness of ½ cm at least.
With the man shaped cookie cutter make many cookies, if you want to hang them make a hole with the tip of a sac a poche.
Put them slightly spaced on baking plates and cook at 180° for 10 minutes. They must not darken too much.
Churn out and let them cool so that they harden.

Once cold whip the egg white adding little by little the powdered sugar. Color to taste with food dyes and divide into sac-a-poche.

Insert a ribbon into the hole drilled in the cookie and hang them on the Christmas tree.
