Ingredients
  Butter 4 Ounce, softened (1 Stick)
  Firmly packed dark brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Finely ground almonds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground allspice 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Grated nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Powdered sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Orange juice 3 Teaspoon
Directions

1. In a medium bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and flurry. Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended.
2. Add flour mixed with almonds, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and salt and beat until blended. Shape dough into 2 logs 8 inches long. Tightly wrap in wax paper and refrigerate at least 1 hour, until firm.
3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut logs into 3/8-inch-thick slices and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until bottoms begin to color. Let cookies cool on sheets 2 minutes, then remove to a rack and let cool completely.
4. In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and enough orange juice to make an icing of spreading consistency. Spread on completely cooled cookies.
