Tea Cake Recipe

I always new Christmas was around the corner when MaMa Griffin would bake these cookies. This is one of my favorite cookies.


1 cup butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

Add – 4 eggs

Stir in

5 cups sifted flour

3 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 to 2 tsp nutmeg (depends on taste – I like nutmeg and use 2)

2 tsp vanilla

Chill dough for at least an hour. Roll out to 1/2 inch and bake at 400 degrees until llight light golden brown. No longer than 8 minutes usually.

You can make them thinner if you like them crispy.
