Mama Katie is my youngest sister's Godmother. At least two nights a week we had dinner at Her and Mama Hester's(her daughter-in-law)house. My siblings and I begged her to make tea cakes for us. Noone to my knowledge kept her recipes so I tried until I think I got one close to hers.

How To Make mama katie's tea cakes redone

  • 1
    Preheat oven 350. Place parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets or spray with your favorite baking spray. In a medium bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder. In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each. Add flour alternating with buttermilk until batter is mixed.(will be slightly stiff)Add vanilla and mix well. Turn out dough onto a floured board and add flour until no longer sticky.(I add about 1/2 cup). something I wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator about one hour until chilled to make it easier to handle. Roll out to about one inch and cut with a medium biscuit cutter. Or roll into walnut sized balls and flatten with your fingers or a fork.
