Prohibition Tea Cakes Recipe

Prohibition Tea Cakes
Servings: 10

This recipe is from an old cookbook I found. This is a Prohibition recipe because it calls for wine, so they had to use homemade wine. Home made wine or beer was legal as long as it contained no more than one-half per cent alcohol. From Every Woman's Cook Book, by Mrs. Chas. F. Moritz (1926) p. 457-458. The amounts in the ingredients look like estimates, much like my Gamma's recipes. She never measured anything so when she gave me her recipes it was all guesses and also from me watching her.
