These tea cake cookies are great for letting children frost them because they don't crumble easily.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup butter flavored shortening
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
Cream together eggs, butter, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the flour. Dough will be stiff.
Shape in walnut sized balls and flatten with the bottom of a glass.
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.
