Tea Cakes

Every afternoon at 3 o'clock grandma had tea time. Along with tea you had a small snack of a cake, cookie, or cheese and crackers. It was a great time to come around the table. A tradition that continues in the family, and a nice chance to reminisce about grandma.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp. vanilla (or 2 tsp. lemon and 1 tsp. almond extract)

Cream butter and sugar, then add unbeaten eggs and cream again. Sift flour and baking powder together and add along with vanilla, mixing to make a firm dough. Roll as thin as possible, cut, place on greased pans and bake in a quick oven.
