I hadn't encountered the southern teacake before. I was used to the British style, which is quite different. These seem like a more cake-like version of a sugar cookie and would be great, as the name implies, with a cup of coffee or tea. They look quite easy to make and I'm interested in trying out the recipe.

These would be so lovely for tea in the backyard!
