  • 1/4 pound sweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour (add more if needed for a stiff batter)
  • grated rind of one lemon
  • egg white
  • almonds


Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Roll dough as thin as possible and cut with a small cookie cutter. Brush top of cookie with egg white and place half an almond in the center. Bake 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees. This recipe makes a lot of cookies. They will keep a long time in a tight container.
