Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add to egg mixture, stirring well.
Press dough into a waxed paper-lined 8 inch square baking pan; cover and refrigerate overnight. Turn dough out of pan, and remove waxed paper. Slice dough in half, forming two 8 x 4 inch rectangles. Cut each portion crosswise into 1/4 inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
