1. Cream butter and castor sugar. 2. Add oil and eggs, beat well. 3. Add the vanilla and salt and beat in.4. Sift flour, add in half with baking powder, then add in flour as needed, binding by hand to form a soft dough.5. Roll out on a floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters, or with a knife as desired, or even use a biscuit machine gun. 6. Place on a sheet tray with baking paper a little far apart.7. Bake in a preheated oven at 160 °C for 15- 20 minutes. (I prefer the biscuits being a little paler, but you may bake till golden if you like.)8.

Or paste together with buttercream icing/ jam.#mamataughtmewellrecipes
INFO & TIPS
Note: I took 1/4 of the dough and tinted purple. Then cut out flowers from the tinted dough and placed on cut squares to bake together in the oven.
