1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease oven trays.
2.Beat butter and honey in a small bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in sifted dry ingredients, bran and enough water to mix to a soft dough.
3.Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Roll dough between sheets of baking paper until 3mm thick. Using a 5cm round fluted cutter, cut rounds from dough; place on trays about 3cm apart.
4.Bake biscuits for 10 minutes or until browned lightly. Leave biscuits on trays for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
5.Meanwhile, make icing: sift icing sugar into a small heatproof bowl; stir in honey and enough juice to make a stiff paste. Place bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water; stir until icing is spreadable.
6.Spread biscuits with icing; leave to set on wire racks.
