Old Fashion Tea Cakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift together flour, baking soda and cream of tartar, then beat into creamed mixture.

Divide the dough into 3 or 4 portions and roll them out, one at a time, on a lightly floured board to a thickness of 1/4-inch. Cut with a cookie cutter and transfer cutouts to a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F. until lightly browned — no longer than 10 minutes.
