Exclamation Lost cookie recipe -- SOS!

Hi. Can anyone help me find a lost recipe card from Great American recipes -- at least 10 years old -- for Grandma's tea cookies?? An eggless cookie made with butter and powdered sugar. These are similar to russian tea cakes. I've made these for years with my Mom, and I've recently lost the card! I've tried at least 4 recipes but they are not the same, something is missing. I tried GAR customer service but the card is out of print... Much appreciation to anyone who can share this recipe card!!!!

I just checked my Great American Home Baking binders, but that one isn't listed. I hope someone else has it and can help you!

Is this it? It says it's sourced from a Great American Recipes card, and it's made with butter and powdered sugar and no eggs.


In case you have trouble with the link:

Tea Cookies
"Interesting and appealing with a unique texture."


1 c. butter, softened
c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
dash salt
dash baking powder
c. finely chopped pecans
powdered sugar for dusting

In a bowl, beat together the butter and the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
Add vanilla.
Blend together flour, salt and baking powder.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture, blending well.
Add the chopped nuts, combine well.
Roll the dough out into two balls. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least one hour.
Flatten dough out and cut into 15/16 equal size pieces
Shape into small marble-sized balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375-400 for 10 to 12 minutes until firm but not brown.
While still warm, roll into powdered sugar or dust with powdered sugar.
Let cool, roll again in powdered sugar.
