Old Fashioned Frosted Tea Cakes

Posted in : Cake, Dessert on by : Master Chef

Children love these delicious Frosted Tea Cakes (also known as Pink Cookies). They make a great after school snack or as a welcome surprise when packed in lunch boxes. The best way to describe them is to say they are a cross between a vanilla flavored white butter cake and a cream scone. I like to frost them with this delicious buttery sweet Confectioners Frosting and colored sprinkles are entirely optional.

Ingredients:

Frosted Tea Cakes:

1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar

1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract

3 large eggs, at room temperature

2 1/4 cups (295 grams) all purpose flour

2 teaspoons (8 grams) baking powder

1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) salt

Confectioners Frosting:

1 1/2 cups (180 grams) confectioners sugar (icing or powdered sugar), sifted
