“Old-Timey Tea Cakes” was the recipe that caught my attention and I made a batch. With two cups of flour, one and a third cups of sugar, two sticks of butter and a few more ingredients, in a little over an hour I had 96 tea cakes that didn’t need to stay in our house. I decided out the door they would go as we delivered them to people we visited.
My friend suggested a dozen would be a nice number to give each family.
The packaging was simple. I recycled my small gift bags with the colorful tissue paper. The cookies were placed in a new zip-lock bag and dropped gently into the bags. They were well received.
The gift bags are filled and ready to go out the door. There is a special feeling that comes when delivering a pretty little bag with homemade tea cakes inside.
I call it my cookie ministry.
