Italian Sugar Cakes

Beat 1-1/2 pounds of sugar and 1/2 pound of butter to a cream; add 4 yolks of eggs, a pinch of salt and nutmeg. Stir in 1/2 pound of flour, 4 ounces of currants, 2 ounces of chopped almonds, 1 tablespoonful of citron and candied orange peel chopped fine. Add the whites beaten stiff and bake in small well-buttered cake-tins until done; then cover with a thin icing.
