These tea cake cookies are great for letting children frost them because they don't crumble easily.

Directions

  1. Cream together eggs, butter, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the flour. Dough will be stiff.
  2. Shape in walnut sized balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass.
  3. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 minutes. If you brown them, you've overbaked them. These may also be rolled out and cut with cookie cutters.

I made these and MAN were they good. Yes please cook these for 8 to 10 min. I put cream cheese frosting on some of them and my family went wild. Basic recipe and so easy.

Thanks for posting this. This is a cookie my grandmother made, back when we ate the dough before she could cook it!
