Dodd Family Christmas Cookies


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


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.
