How to Make Original Family Recipe for Tea Cakes (from 1800's)
- Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time and stir after each one.
- Dissolve baking soda in sour milk and add this to the mixture.
- Add enough flour to make dough stiff enough to dump on floured board. Knead in more flour until you can roll the dough out and cut out tea cakes. Bake and cool.
- Modern day instructions not included in original recipe: Place on cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
