Tea Cakes

Tonight after supper, I made tea cakes (they’re just really simple and dainty little old-fashioned cookies). There are lots and lots left to share. They turned out really nice, and Av loved them! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients (will make 2-3 dozen tea cakes):
1c. sugar, plus just a tiny extra to sprinkle over hot tea cakes
1/2 c. butter
1 egg
2 c. flour
1/3 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
dash salt
1/6 c. sweet milk
1 tsp. vanilla
…you’ll also need foil-lined cookie sheets

Preheat the oven to 325*.
First, I creamed the butter and sugar in my Kitchen-Aid. While that was going, I mixed together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, then, I added to the Kitchen-Aid bowl the egg. Next, I added some of the dry mixture, then some of the milk, then back and forth until it was all incorporated:

Once everything has been mixed together well and evenly, I took my fingers and formed small ball-shaped rounds and placed them (with lots of space in-between) on foil-lined baking sheets:

After about 14-15 minutes in the 325* oven, they came out perfectly (this is the part where, if you want to, you can sprinkle the *tiniest* amount of sugar on top):
