Honey Spice Cookies

   3/4 cup butter, softened
   3/4 cup sugar
   1/4 cup honey
   1 egg
   2 cups flour
   1/2 teaspoon salt
   1/2 teaspoon baking soda
   1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
   1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
   1/2 teaspoon orange extract
   Cream butter and sugar. Add honey and egg, and mix well. Add flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, and cloves, and blend. Add orange extract and mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, allowing 2 inches between cookies. Bake at 375 degrees f for 10 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool. While still warm, frost with a glaze made by combining 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 2 teaspoons grated orange peel.
