Tea Balls

This treat was sold, freshly made, at the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale. The line up was so long, they must have a really good taste reputation. Here is the recipe from their booklet.

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 tbsp melted shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour

Beat eggs. Add sugar, vanilla and milk. Add sifted dry ingredients. Beat well and then add warm shortening. Drop by spoonfuls into hot fat at 350-365 F. fry until golden brown, then remove and roll in sugar.
Enjoy fresh!
