They may be rolled out and cut into rounds, stars, or crescents.

Often they are hung on the lower branches of the Christmas tree as

treats for the younger children.

4 cups flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup powdered sugar (icing)

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 extra large eggs

1 cup honey

2 tablespoons chopped orange peel

1 egg beaten with a little water for glaze

20 blanched almonds (without peel)

coarse sugar crystals

Sift together flour, spices, sugar, and baking powder. Add eggs,

honey, and orange peel to make a stiff dough. On a floured work

surface, roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick. Cut shapes with cookie

cutter, place on nonstick baking sheet, and brush with glaze.

Place 1/2 almond in the middle of each, sprinkle with coarse sugar,

and bake in preheated 350 degrees oven until done, about 15 minutes.

Cool on racks. Store in tightly covered tins.
