Tried this recipe today and I'm enjoying it. I used the measurements here and a scale for the spices and a recipe on Erowid for the flour & sugar.

Here's the converted version of the recipe:

2 Tbsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1.5 tsp ground cloves
3 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 sticks of butter
2 eggs
pinch salt
3/4 cup chopped almonds

I'd also like to note that 2 sticks of butter is equal to 1 cup.
