This recipe took me back to when I was a little girl growing up in Forrest City, Arkansas. Ms. Lucy (a grandma figure) used to baby sit me and she made tea cakes that looked and tasted JUST LIKE these! I am almost 50 years old and I've tried many tea cake recipes trying to recapture the taste and texture of Ms. Lucy's tea cakes. Until now, I was unsuccessful. These cookies are absolutely delicious!!!! Not only are they delicious, but I get to savor wonderful memories of Ms. Lucy reaching into airtight plastic container (an empty lard bucket LOL) and saying, "Sweetie, would you like a tea cake?" :). Many thanks to the person who shared this wonderful recipe.
