Preparation: Scrape the vanilla seeds from the vanilla pod and put them in a bowl with sugar and softened butter, then whip until it becomes white and thick. Add the egg and whip again. Then add the milk, flour, baking powder and peel from the lemon into the dough, and knead it. Place the dough on flat surface, and divide it into 10 portions. Roll each portion into sausages with a diameter of approximately 3cm. Cut the sausages into pieces 1cm thick and then shape these by hand into little balls. Place the balls on a baking tray, and bake them at 180 degrees Celsius for about 12 minutes.
