1. Beat the eggs well, add the sugar a little at a time and beat until light and fluffy. Add the honey and almonds and stir just enough to mix.
2. Sift the flour, soda and spices together, add the fruit cut in paper-thin strips and mix well so that the fruit is completely covered with flour. Combine the two mixtures and refrigerate to chill.
3. Preheat oven to moderate (350° F.).
4. Spread the mixture one-quarter inch thick on a buttered baking sheet and bake thirty minutes. Cool slightly and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
