Tea Buns

Tea Buns are one of those traditional Newfoundland staples, especially from our grandmothers' generation. I remember eating these when visiting my grandparents. I never did like the raisins in them, so when I make them for my family, I omit the raisins :-)

I found this recipe in a small printed book from 1980, called Newfoundland Recipes. I was glad to see it didn't include raisins, though I'm sure you could add in a cup of raisins if you like.

TEA BUNS
3 cups flour
3 heaping tsp of baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter
1 TBSP lard (I omit this)
1 egg
1 cup water

Mix dry ingredients and cut in butter with pastry blender. Mix egg and water, and add to dry ingredients. Do not over mix. Roll on lightly floured surface, try for 1-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutter (or use top of a small glass). Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes at 450 deg.

Sassafras tea made from roots and bark has long been a home-brewed beverage. It's the traditional flavor in root beer, and so much a Southern staple that a reference to "cinnamon seed" or sassafras tea is found in older versions of the song "Dixie", the unofficial Confederate anthem. where can i buy matcha green tea perth
