Southern Tea Cakes
Ingredients:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup or less milk (we used Silk and it turned out well)
Mix all dry ingredients, cut in shortening.  Next, add eggs and vanilla.  Mix.  If it’s too crumbly, add a little milk at a time until you get the cookie dough consistency.  Drop onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 425 degrees until lightly brown on the edges, I think mine took around 5 minutes or so.  Enjoy!
The back of the cookie when NOT burnt, as was my first batch!
