When my neice Dee and I were young
(well I was Young she was very small) my mother use to bake these Tea Cakes. I can still close my eyes and smell the aroma in the house. It became a Christmas Tridation for us to help her make these devine cookies I can remember Dee with flour on her little face and sweet little hands.Now it is a tradition for me and my grandchildren.
