Another JAP member is searching for a recipe for Tea Cakes from Betty Crocker the 1970's. I have found this one in my 1950 Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook. I think it just might be the one she is looking for...Hope So!!! Smiles!!
In another bowl sift together the next 3 ingredients. Then stir this into your first mixture.
Now mix in the last 2 ingredients. This will now form a nice dough.
Chill dough. Now you are ready to roll into balls the size of walnuts. Dip tops in slightly beaten egg white, then sugar.
Place sugared side up 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until delicately browned. The balls flatten some in baking and become glazed. They should bake in 12 to 15 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen 1 1/2" cookies.
