Someone mentioned Brother Thomas's Cookies on another post. I know I had that recipe a long time ago, but am unable to find it. Could someone please post it again??? Thanks!
Are you talking about Brother Tom's tea cookies?
Brother Tom was one of my dad's best friends and he was known for his tea cookies at our hometown church.
Country Bumpkin was asking for it cause they used to live next to eachother and she enjoyed his tea cookies.
I have the recipe if that is what you are looking for, in the family church recipe book.
Love Tom's Tea Cakes..that's what we always called them!! :D
Back in those days, men in the church would call eachother "brother" as a gesture of closeness. At least that's what I always thoughts.
My dad was Brother Raymond.
Here is the recipe, courtesy of Ms. Glenda:

bump, go look at the link I posted. shows them cutting the cakes with a canning lid.
Here's his recipe and it uses lemon flavoring
Brother Tom's tea cakes
1 c sugar
1 stick margarine
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon flavoring
2 1/2 c plain flour
cream together the egg, sugar and margarine. add the soda, vanilla, and lemon flavoring, stir in the flour
roll out on a floured board and cut with a biscuit cutter
place on ungreased baking sheet
bake 325 for 10 minutes until lightly browned
makes about 5 dozen
***I copied it exactly from the l983 edition of the church recipe book
THE COINCIDENCE TO THIS IS THAT: BRO TOM and his wife were friends of my parents, and I grew up with their children. We all went to the same church.
come to find out country bumpkin knew them as well, cause they were from her side of town :o) SMALL WORLD
That's the one!! Thanks Glenda and Kay!!
We love our Glender!!!!
Enjoy and thanks, Kay!
Glenda, that looks like such a yummy recipe. But, how would it be affected if I use butter instead of margarine?
Just got the cookbook out and it was published in l983 and rechecked the recipe.
I don't know why using butter would make any difference except to make it even richer tasting????????
I always use Lake of Lakes in my baking.
