 1/2 lb almonds
 8 oz. citron sliced thin
 1 and 1/2 lb flour
 1/2 oz cinnamon
 1 tsp ground cloves
 1/2 tsp nutmeg
 2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder

 Melt butter over low heat. Stir it into the sugar, spices, chopped almonds,
 and well beaten eggs and yolks. Add flour slowly, the baking powder
 having previously been mixed with the flour.

 top of each cookie with egg white. Bake in a moderate oven (350F) until brown.
