Lottie Moon Tea Cakes

Getting acquainted with the people of China was very difficult because of the language and cultural differences. As a way to earn the trust of the people and show her goodwill, Lottie Moon made tea cakes for the children in her village. At first the children were afraid to eat the cookies, thinking they were poisonous or would cause some kind of disease. However, once the children ate the cookies, they would take Lottie to their homes where she would share the gospel with their mothers. The children began calling Lottie “the cookie lady” instead of “foreign devil.”

Plain Tea Cake (as made by Lottie Moon): three teacups of sugar; one teacup of butter; one teacup of sour milk; four pints flour; three eggs, well beaten; half a teaspoon of soda; flavor to taste, roll thin, bake in a quick oven.
Adapted recipe: 2 cups flour, 1⁄2 cup butter, 1 heaping cup of sugar, 1 well-beaten egg, 1 tablespoon cream. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg, mix well and then mix in the flour and cream. Dust a board with flour and roll the dough very thin. Cut cookies with a round cookie cutter and place on a buttered or nonstick cookie sheet. Bake at 475 degrees for about 5 minutes.
