Annie Burrie's Christmas Cookies

Growing up in an Italian neighborhood, I was lucky enough to live next door to Annie. Annie Baked. Seriously baked for Christmas. For both Sam and myself, these were our favorites. I just found the recipe during the past year.

1 In a mixer, add melted butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
2 Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt.
3 Change to dough hooks and add flour mixture.
4 Add the warm water and mix until it forms a smooth dough.
5 Make 11/2 inch balls with dough.
6 Roll balls out to about 4 inch worms
7 Bring one end over the other, then underneath and through the middle, like a knot.
8 Place on baking sheet, four rows of four. (16 cookies on each sheet)
