Turkish Shortbread (Un Kurabiyesi)
In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil and margarine/butter. Then add starch, vanilla and knead. Add flour slowly and knead to make the dough smooth and soft.
Grab walnut size or smaller dough pieces and round them in your palms. Arrange them over a greased tray or tray with a baking paper. Make at least one inch room between each other.
Preheat the oven to 170-180 C and bake for about 25-30 minutes. Do not over bake, otherwise they will get brown.
Take them out of the oven and cool. Sprinkle powdered sugar all over before serving.
