       Yield: 12 servings
  
       4 c  Unbleached all-purpose flour
       1 ts Ground cinnamon
     1/2 ts Ground cloves
     1/2 ts Ground ginger
     1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
       1 c  Powdered sugar
       2 ts Baking powder
       2    Eggs/extra large
       1 c  Honey
       2 tb Orange peel; chopped
       1 lg Egg; beaten with a little
            Water for glazing

            Coarse sugar crystals
  
       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.
