3 cups almond flour
1 stick butter

1 teaspoon water
1/4 - 1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Blend ingredients in a bowl. Mix until the dough is dry enough and not sticky to work with. Add more almond flour if necessary.
2. Place dough in fridge or freezer for approx. 15 min - 1/2 hour.
3. Roll the dough out and cut with cookie cutters. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 10 min.
