I just love these teacakes! My grandmother made them for us when we were young, and I made them for my children. I had them on my mind the other day, and thought I'd make a batch this morning. They are crisp, sweet and very good with coffee. I suppose I was thinking of the children when I realized I was pouring this glass of milk!
