American Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies have a subtle saltiness.
The texture of the brown granulated sugar gives them something to enjoy.

60 g
90 g

1. Soften the butter by bringing it to room temperature. Combine it with the shortening. Add the sugar and mix well.
2. Add the egg and continue mixing.
3. Add a little few drops of vanilla extract and mix well.
4. Add the flour and baking powder. Switch to a rubber spatula and briskly fold into the dough.
