    100 gr butter
    2 dl granulated sugar
    1dl sunflower oil
    4,5 dl all-purpose flour
    1 tsp bakers ammonia
    3 tsp vanilla sugar
    1. Stir together butter and sugar. Add the oil and whisk until the mixture is white and porous. 2nd Mix the flour with bakers ammonia and vanilla and stir into the batter. 3rd Roll small balls of dough and place on. Bake in 300 hot Owen for about 17 minutes.
