Drömmar (Swedish Dream Cookies)

TYPE : Swedish
YIELD : 16 cookies
CALORIES : 110 kcal
PREP TIME : 15 minutes
COOK TIME : 20 minutes


  • 1/2 stick (50 g) soft butter
  • 2/3 cup (1.5 dl) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (0.5 dl) neutral oil (I use Crisco pure canola oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar, or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (2 dl) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp ammonium bicarbonate / baker's ammonia (hjorthornssalt)


  • Set the oven to 300°F (150°C).
  • Mix butter and sugar by hand or mixer, then gradually add the oil. Finally mix in flour and ammonium bicarbonate.
  • Roll into balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Flatten them a little with your fingers, then refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool on the baking sheet.


Baker’s ammonia can be found online or in select European or international markets. Using regular baking powder works, but they will not turn out as crumbly.
