Let's Bake some Cookies!
I have tried to find a recipe for Tea Cakes for many years.
My aunt Toots and grandmother Doty baked them.
They were YUM!
A good childhood memory.
Grandmother is gone, so the recipe went with her,
Aunt Toots has given me the recipe and it doesn't seem quite right.
She is getting on in years, as my grandmother would say.
So I searched, and tried many times to duplicate these wonderful tea cakes.
I think I have it.
The ultimate test is.....
He says they are darn close.
So here is the recipe.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
2 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Combine the sugar and butter in mixing bowl, beating until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time. Beating well after each addition. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, salt, and nutmeg. Add to cream mixture and mix well.
Drop by spoonful onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
