1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of salt

1 tbsp grated orange peel

1- Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. In a medium bowl, mix flour, powdered sugar,salt,baking powder and set aside.

2- In a big bowl, mix margarine, olive oil, eggs gradually add the mixed dry ingredients and mix to combine.

3- Divide dough in half and gather in to balls, don’t chill them. On a floured work surface, roll dough to 1/2 cm thickness and cut with a heart -shaped cookie cutter or star cookie cutter.

Also you can make the dough another shape like caterpillar cookies, Traditional Turkish Caterpillar cookie is very popular in my country.For making this caterpillar cookie shape – transfer dough into bag fitted with a Star nozzle. Pipe out strait 5 cm dough pieces.

4- Bake for about 15- 20 minutes, or until firm;  don’t let the cookies brown too much.

5- Take out of the oven and let it cool for one minute. These are great warm or cool and if deserve, dip your cookies in melted chocolate. They also store well, if they don’t  all get eaten straight away!

Bon appetite!

Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes.
