Teacakes and Tea
Spend much time with me and you will catch on, that I like to experiment, and I like to cook with almond meal. So here is my latest, and I REALLY like it!
The finished product reminds me of the old-fashioned sweet soft mellow cookie known as teacakes. This is how I made it. I only had one stick of butter in the house so this is a small batch, yielding only 2 dozen cookies. Double it for more...........
1 stick of butter (= one half cup)
3/4 cup of sugar
Add 1 and 1/2 cup white flour 1 cup ALMOND MEAL (You can buy it in same isle as flour...)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
a dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Make ping-pong ball size balls and dip the tops in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Set on the pan and flatten slightly with hand palm.
Bake 350* for 8-12 minutes.
Watch closely. I took them out before they were golden, and the texture is perfect.
I heated water in the microwave to make tea with, and sweetened it with the sugar cinnamon mixture and I LOVE THAT TOO !! If you like cinnamon.........try it for a treat!
Then add great friends and a good book to this, and you have the makings of a wonderful afternoon, in my view !!
