400 degrees for 10 minutes was perfect! Thank you for letting others know. Wish the recipe had that info though.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
My four year old son helped me make this recipe. My whole family started eating them time they came out of the oven. I set the oven to 400 and baked the tea cakes for 10 minutes.
