These tea buns are really good. The recipe has been given to my friend Bonnie who lives in Vermont and she has passed it on to her friend. I hope you enjoy them.

How to Make Diane's Newfie Tea Buns


  1. Preheat oven to 375'F. To a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix it through.
  2. Add butter and cut in until the butter is about the size of a nickle.
    In a small bowl beat eggs, milk and 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix this in with the flour mixture and then add raisins.
  3. Lightly flour a cutting board or piece of waxed paper and pat out the dough to about 1&1/2 inches. Cut out buns using a small juice glass or deep cookie cutter. Bake in a preheated oven at 375'F. for 15 mins. or until lightly brown. These can be frozen and then microwaved for 30 secs or so. You can have a great tea bun any time!
