4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1⁄2cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 teaspoons water


Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs; add vanilla and then dry ingredients.
Knead and add flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to hands. Pinch off dough, roll in your hands to form a log and then twirl into shape. Place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
Combine the next 3 ingredients until creamy.
Dip cookies into icing and sprinkle with trim. Place on wire rack with wax paper on counter to collect the dripping icing and sprinkles.
