Stir together flour, sugar, almonds, candied peels, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center. Add honey, kirsch or brandy, and beaten egg. Stir till dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half.
Roll half of the dough at a time on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 21/2x1-inch strips. Repeat with remaining dough. Place cookies 1 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 10 minutes or till golden brown. Transfer to wire racks and cool. While cookies are still warm, brush with Citrus Glaze.
Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon or orange peel, and 2 teaspoons lemon or orange juice. Add enough water to make mixture of glazing consistency (about 2 to 3 teaspoons).
