These old fashioned tea cakes are updated with electric mixer instructions and preparation tips, but the formula is close to the original They are not overly sweet, so if you want a sweet cookie, add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar.
For easy rolling, lightly flour (or dust with confectioners’ sugar) a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper, then flour the top of the dough. Put another piece of waxed paper or parchment paper on top and roll gently. I think this method cuts down on the amount of flour you would otherwise have to add to keep them from sticking.
