Tea Cakes Recipe

I've baked many batches of different cookies through the years, but family and friends tell me these are the best. The simple buttery flavor appeals to all.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:54 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture (the dough will be soft).
  • 2. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 7-8 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 9 dozen.

"Fabulous flavor in a crisp cookie. Very simple to make. I always double or triple the recipe and they stay fresh in plastic containers for a couple of weeks, if they last that long."

"I made these today and I love the flavor. However, I was looking for a more of a round style teacake like the images I grew up with. These are more on the puffy style. Thanks for sharing. Keeping the recipe for the future cookie drop type."

"I love these! Even my picky 10 year old son and husband (he doesn't like sweets) love these. I added an additional 1/4 cup butter."
