1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 cup honey
4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons finely chopped orange peel
4 tablespoons finely chopped almonds


Cream butter and add sugar, then beat in yolks, sift flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder together and add alternately with honey to sugar, butter, and yolks. Fold in finely chopped orange peel and almonds, a stiff dough results. Try a dab to see how dough bakes. If cookies spread too much, add a little more flour. Drop from a spoon onto a greased baking sheet and bake.
