       Title: ELEGANT TEA CAKES
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
     1/2 c  Butter
       1 c  Granulated sugar
       1    Egg
       1 tb Cream
       1 ts Vanilla
       2 c  Flour
     1/2 ts Baking powder
  
    Serve these not-too-sweet cookies in the traditional
   English fashion with your favorite cup of tea. They
   are delicious with a dab of jam or marmalade and hold
   up well when dunking.
   
    In a bowl, cream butter with sugar until very light.
   Add well beaten egg, cream and vanilla. In a separate
   bowl, sift flour with baking powder; add creamed
   mixture and blend well. Roll dough into a log and wrap
   in aluminum foil. Chill overnight, or in freezer for 2
   hours if rushed for time.
   
    Preheat oven to 350ø. Remove dough from refrigerator,
   slice very thin and place on greased cookie sheet.
   Bake 5-8 minutes at 350ø.
   
    Variations: For various holidays decorate with
   colored sugar, beads or icing. Or substitute almond or
   lemon extract for the vanilla to vary the flavor.
