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.

How to Make MAWMAW'S TEA CAKES

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix 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.
  2. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees, until lightly browned.
  3. 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.
