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.
English tea cakes are a great favourite in coffee shops for either morning or afternoon tea , they are toasted and then large amounts of butter put on them whilst hot. My favourite product to put on top is Tate and Lyle Golden Syrup, but now that i live in Australia i have to say Vegemite comes a close second to Golden Syrup. - 10 Jun 2017

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)
