(Spice Bars)
Servings: 12

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup almonds, ground
1 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup milk

1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon rum
1 T water

Stir together the spices, salt flour, and baking powder. Stir in
the almonds and lemon rind. In a separate bowl beat the eggs and
sugar until a ribbon is formed when the beater is removed. Stir
in the honey and milk. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, beat
until smooth. Spread the batter in an 11 X 17-inch jelly roll pan
that is well greased and floured.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes, until the cake is done.
While the cake is still warm, turn it out onto a wire rack. To
make the almond glaze, mix the confectioners' sugar, almond extract,
rum, and 1 to 2 T of water. Beat until glaze is smooth and of the
right consistency. Add more water to thin if neccessary. Spread
the warm cake with the almond glaze. Cut cake into 1 X 2 1/2-inch
bars while still warm. Spice bars keep 6 to 8 weeks in a sealed
container if not glazed. Makes 4 dozen bars.
