3Add eggs & vanilla; blend together.
4In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, & salt. Then add to butter mixture.
5Knead/mix (inside bowl) thoroughly-(at this point I have to use my hands).
6Load dough into cookies press and press into desired shapes onto non-greased cookies sheets. Decorate with colored sugars as desired.
7Bake 6 to 8 minutes until edges are light brown-DO NOT OVER BAKE.
8HINT: If dough stays too sticky, add a little more Wondra flour and knead into dough. Also, dampen paper towel and cover dough in-between pressing cookies onto sheets so dough will not dry out.
