MAWMAW'S TEA CAKES
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.

1Mix all ingredients together.
Add enough flour to get desired consistency ( about 3 or 4 cups ).
Roll out on floured board.
Cut with cookie cutter, and place on a greased cookie sheet.
2Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees, until lightly browned.
3NOTE: 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.
