Old Fashioned Tea Cakes
This is another very old family recipe. My grandmother used to make Tea Cakes for me when I was a little girl. My littlecousin (Gwen is her real name) rescued the family recipe by getting it from her Aunt Sarah...my grandmother's niece. Just another wonderful thing about being a Southern girl...food and family are always an important part of your life!
1 stick butter 1 C. sugar (minus 2 TBS)
1 egg ½ tsp. vanilla
Self-rising flour ¼ C whole milk
Cream together butter and sugar; add egg, milk and vanilla, mix. Add self-rising flour to make dough like biscuits. Knead and make rolls of dough in wax paper. Let stand in refrigerator. When cold, cut in rounds and place on cookie sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy with you favorite cup of tea!._______________________________________________________________________
