1 cup unsalted butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt

1 egg white
1 tsp almond extract
confectioners' sugar, as needed (about 2-4 cups)

Cream butter and sugar in large mixer bowl with electric mixer.
Beat in egg until light. Stir in corn syrup, orange rind and water.

consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until icing sets.

I have made this recipe 2 years now and will make it every year. I had so many people ask me for the recipe. Definitely a great ginger cookie for the Holidays.
