Mom's Tea Cake Cookies by


1 egg
2 cups sugar
1 cup Crisco
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda (level)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups flour - plus ? until dough holds its shape close to 4 cups
1 tsp. vanilla


Mix all of above - roll out on floured board - thickness you prefer
use cookie cutter - cook 350 * around 10 min. until cookie does not show fingerprint on top - This cookie does not brown on top.


1 box powdered sugar - sifted
1/2 stick of butter - melted
1 small can of evaporated milk - almost a whole can

Mix all until blended. Should be somewhat thick - not too runny-
this will harden on cookie. I have even used a small brush and brush on this icing - when doing this works best with a cookie rack on a
cookies sheet to catch the icing - Enjoy! After icing has hardened store in air tight container - might use wax paper between layers to keep from sticking - your call.
