Tea Cakes For Christmas

written by: Mary Bone


Tea cakes were a regular treat for Andrew when he was growing up. His mother made the cakes for after school and at Christmas time.
He remembered running into the house as a child and yelling, "Are there any more tea cakes?" His mother would say," We saved some just for you."

After Andrew's mom passed away and he was a grown man, he was still searching for someone to make the tea cakes like his mom used to make. She had a secret ingredient and never wrote down the recipe. That ingredient was so special and was called, "Love."
