This is probably one of my family's OLDEST recipes. Not sure where it came from, but the recipe card is old, withered, and covered in stains, so you know it's a good one! It's super yummy and can be eaten plain, or spiced up with other ingredients.

How to Make Southern Tea Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Flour a surface, and roll out dough. It should be thicker than an average cookie. Cut out cookies (using a cup or a circular cookie cutter).
