NANA'S TEACAKES

I've thought of my mom a great deal this weekend. Today was her birthday. My mom was known for her cooking. One of the special recipes she made was her teacakes. She used to make them and serve them warm from the oven. Sometimes she would add a little pat of butter on each one. They were so delicious. My kids did something very special, so special that it makes me cry to think of it. They made dozens and dozens of Nana's Teacakes for her memorial service. I was even able to help them bake some and that made us feel closer in our time of grief. I never really told them how much their actions touched me, but it is something I will never forget.

This is my mom's recipe in her handwriting.
