I hate to spoil the great rating, but these are not quite the same taste as the elders in my family. The amount of nutmeg was only a hint and it leaves this tasting like a great butter cookie. Our family's recipe is more like a mini cookie cake. I wasn't sure how long to keep the dough refrigerated and after a few hours it was too hard to roll. After sitting out for 30 minutes it was ready. Keep the flour handy as you'll have to keep flouring your board and rolling pin unless you use wax paper on top and beneath the dough. This is great tasting dough and I think I preferred that over the actual cookie. Unfortunately, I'll have to keep searching for authentic tea cakes instead of these "cookies."
