Inukshuk sugar cookies

Simple. Sweet. Satisfying. These plain sugar cookies hold the inukshuk shape while baking, but aren't brittle. The recipe couldn't be easier.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • Blend butter and sugar on high until fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla.
  • Gradually add flour and salt, blending on low.
  • Form small balls with your hands, and flatten with the base of a glass before imprinting. The glass and the mold should be floured to avoid sticking to the dough.
  • Bake for ~8 minutes at 350° Fahrenheit, or until edges just begin to turn golden.
