I do not claim to be a cook – just ask my fiancé about a recent Pinterest fail involving copycat Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets – BUT I do feel confident in my baking abilities so naturally I look forward to Christmas baking all year long! While wedding planning has taken over most of my time – 10 days! – I made time Sunday afternoon to crank up the Bing Crosby and make our family’s favorite Christmas cookies: Tea Cakes.
The recipe comes from an old JCS cookbook that my mom has used since I was little, and we’ve been making these tea cakes ever since with our vast collection of holiday cookie cutters. They’re amazing as is or iced with a simple icing (powdered sugar, vanilla, milk), and while I kept this batch chic with a layer of white icing and pearl green sugar sprinkles, feel free to get your creative on when it comes to decorating your candy canes and Christmas trees!
Happy Holiday Baking!
