Preheat the oven to 180°C, and line a sheet with parchment paper.

In a big bowl, mix the powdered sugar, the spices and the baking soda, then add the room temperature butter, the honey and the eggs. Mix it all together well with your hands.

Spread the batter until it's 1 cm thick, and then use a cookie cutter to create the desired shapes.

Put the cookies onto the baking sheet, and then bake them until 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven.
