Some things are best told through butter: Part Two

Dear Linds,

I miss you. I've been missing a lot of people lately. Thankfully, I'm going to see you in less than a week (eek!), but some people, like my little sister, live too far away for a weekend visit. I made her these sugar cookies to send a little love her way:
(It's supposed to look like the United States, with a made-up flight path between our respective locations)

Here's the recipe for the sugary buttery loove:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sale
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350F. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mixing just until blended. Refrigerate the dough for on hour before rolling out and cutting your cookies. Bake until golden around edges, about 12 - 15 minutes.
