Southern Tea Cake Cookies


Enjoy the charm of Southern Tea Cake Cookies! With the essence of nutmeg, the richness of butter

and a touch of vanilla, these classic treats made with flour, sugar, egg and a pinch of salt and baking

powder will transport your taste buds straight to the heart of Dixie.


1 ½ cup all-purpose flour


¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon baking powder

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg, room temperature


2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

To make Southern Tea Cake Cookies:


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder and set aside.

Place butter and sugar in the bowl of your mixer and mix on high speed until fluffy and smooth

(about 4-5 minutes).


Set the mixer to medium speed, add an egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.

Finally, set the mixer to slow speed and stir in the flour mixture in three increments after each


After the dough is well mixed, turn off the mixer, remove the dough from the mixer, place it in a

Ziploc bag and place it in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the dough to harden.Once the


dough is set, remove it from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

Take a measuring spoon, scoop out the cookie dough to the size of the spoon and form it into a ball.

Lightly press the center with your thumb to flatten it a little and place it on the tray.

Do the same with the rest of the dough, leaving at least 1 1/2 inches between each dough ball.Bake

for 9-11 minutes until the edges are golden brown and remove from the oven.

Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and serve.


Remember to make sure the ingredients are at room temperature. They are much easier to

incorporate and produce a wonderfully well-mixed dough.


To make your Southern Tea Cakes taste as delicious as the day you baked them, store them in an

airtight container at room temperature; They stay fresh for up to a week.

If you would like to preserve the delicious consistency for a little longer, you can also freeze the tea

cakes; Just make sure they are well packaged and will last up to three months.
