Beat together the eggs, salt, vanilla, and sugar until light and fluffy (best if done with an electric mixer) Add the butter and molasses and thoroughly combine. Mix in the flour, cocoa and spices then fold in the almonds if using. Spread batter evenly in a 9" greased square baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Prepare the glaze while the bars are still warm by mixing the powdered sugar with just enough water to make it a glaze texture. Pour over the bars while still warm. Serve from the pan while still warm or out of the pan once cooled and glaze has set.
