Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, a 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar, and vanilla on high with a handheld electric or stand mixer, until light and fluffy. Turn the mixer down to low and add in the almond flour, followed by the all-purpose flour, scraping down the bowls once or twice.
Using a tablespoon-sized cookie scoop, measure out the dough and form balls with your hands. Place on baking sheets.

While cookies are cooking, whisk together the remaining 1 cup of powdered sugar, the cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, and ginger in a bowl.
Remove cookies from the oven and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes, then gently coat them with the spice mixture.
Set aside to cool for 15 minutes, then toss them in the spice mixture again.
