Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Extra Large Eggs
1 cup Honey
2 tbl. Chopped Orange Peel
1 large Egg -- Beaten with a little water for glazing
20 Blanched Almonds
Coarse Sugar Crystals


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Sift the flour, spices, sugar, and baking powder together, blending well. Add the eggs, honey, and orange peel to make a soft dough.

On a floured work surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters, and place on a lightly greased or non-stick cookie sheet, brushing each one with the egg wash glaze. Place 1/2 of an almond in the top center of each cookie and sprinkle with the sugar crystals.

Bake in a preheated 350 Degree F. oven until done, about 15 minutes. Cool on wire racks and store in airtight tins.
