1 pound confectioners sugar (3 ½ cups)
9 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
9 teaspoon baking powder
1 box cake flour with enough regular flour to make a proper  consistency (dough you can roll)

Icing  is confectionery sugar mixed with orange juice.  Mix enough so its not runny and you can dip the top of the cookies…Sprinkle with colored confection and store in a tight sealed container.
