        Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add
   butter and break with a fork until texture resembles coarse meal. Add pine
   nuts.  In a separate bowl, beat sugar and eggs together; add lemon zest.
   Mix dry ingredients with egg mixture until dough is firm. Knead for 1 to 2
   minutes.  Divide dough into quarters and wrap in plastic wrap; chill for 1
   hour.
        Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Roll out dough, one piece at a time; cut
   into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Arrange on ungreased baking
   sheets.  Brush glaze on each cookie with a pastry brush. Bake for 10
   minutes until lightly golden. Remove to a cooling rack.
