Preheat oven to 375°.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Beat in egg until well combined. Beat in as much flour as you can with mixer. Stir in remaining flour with a spoon. Chill, if necessary, until easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness. Cut out with 4-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
To make icing, in a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract and half-and-half. When cookies are cooled, use a small spatula to spread icing.
