Steel Blade: Process eggs with sugar, oil and juice or water until blended, about 5 seconds. Add baking powder, flour and poppy seeds, if using. Process just until mixed, using on/off pulses. Do not over-process.

Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Using assorted cookie cutters, cut in different shapes. Dip each cookie lightly in sugar. Place sugar-side up on sprayed foil-lined cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden.

Yield: 4 to 5 dozen.

Tips from Norene:

Place cookies on a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. They keep for several weeks, or freeze 1 to 2 months.
