About this recipe: A traditional recipe for tea cakes. Nothing quite compares! This recipe was passed down to me from my aunt. Use less sugar, if desired. You can also use a mix of butter and lard instead of one or the other.
Amazingly delicious! Easy to cook with young children. - 28 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is an absolutely delicious cookie. I can't make enough of them for my family and friends. They disappear by the fistful! Yummy!!! I have also made them using the fruit used in fruit cake and dipping them in colored sugars for different holidays. - 01 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As a Brit i have to tell you although these are nice "cookies", English Teacakes are not meant to be cookies, more roll like that is often toasted and spread with butter and jam ( jelly ) - 18 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
