MAWMAW'S TEA CAKES

I used to make these with my grandmother. Now, I'm teaching my grand children how to make them :-)

If they are rolled out, they are crisp. But I have used less flour and made them like drop cookies, and they are softer that way.

salt
3 tsp

NOTE: If you like lemon flavor, you can replace the vanilla extract with lemon extract.
I have done this before and also put a lemon glaze on the top of the cookies after cooling.
