The dough is spiced with cinnamon and cardamom and dotted with bits of candied orange peel and citron. The cookies are glazed with a brilliantly shiny topping made from sliced almonds and honey. If you cannot find sliced almonds then substitute slivered almonds.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons chopped citron
  • 3 tablespoons chopped Candied orange peel
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 2 cups flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 cups sliced almonds

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Prepare a 10½-by-15½-inch jelly-roll pan. Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in the egg yolks, citron, orange peel and spices. Add the flour and salt and stir until the dough holds together. Pat the dough into the prepared jelly-roll pan and bake for 20 minutes.

While the dough is baking, prepare the topping. Combine the butter, milk, honey and sugar in a 1½-quart saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is bubbling. Stir in the almonds and simmer for 5 minutes. Keep warm.

Remove the dough from the oven and spread it with the almond-honey glaze and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Let the dough cool for 10 minutes before scoring it into 1-by-2½-inch bars. Store, unrefrigerated, in airtight containers.
