   Butter Frosting: Combine water, yeast and 1 T. sugar. Let stand in warm
   place until yeast dissolves and mixture foams. Mix together nutmeg, flour,
   cinnamon, salt and margarine as you would for pie crust. Add egg yolks and
   yeast mixture. Blend well and form into a ball.
   
   Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll each into an 8- or 10-inch circle onto wax
   paper. Cut into eight to ten wedges. Spread each piece with mixture of egg
   white and 1/2 c. sugar and sprinkle with nuts. Roll from wide end to
   pointed end to form a horn. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for
   12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.
   
   To make frosting, combine ingredients and beat until fluffy. Frost when
   cooled.
   
   If left unfrosted, can dust with powdered sugar or leave plain. For
   non-spiced cookie, omit cinnamon and nutmeg.
