Step 1: Wash hands with soap and water.

Step 2: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together butter and sugar until smooth; beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Wash hands after handling raw flour and eggs. Cover and chill dough for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 4: Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface to ¼- to ½-inch thickness. If dough is too sticky, add some additional flour, a little at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

Step 5: Cut cookies using a 2-inch star cookie cutter. On half of the stars, cut out the center using a 1-inch star cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 6-8 minutes; let cool.

Step 6: Spread a little strawberry jelly on uncut star cookie, place cut star cookie over top and press to secure.
