During Thanksgiving, Trisha Yearwood will always include recipes passed down from family members as a way to keep their memories alive. One of the special treats pays tribute to a woman who grew up as a grandmother to Yearwood and her sister Beth. Yearwood said “Mamie” made delicious teacakes that remind her of “people I love” and will “always” be a part of her family’s Thanksgiving table. Trisha Yearwood | Discovery Press Web/Food Network

Who is ‘Mamie’ to the Yearwood family? In an interview with Yahoo!, Yearwood explained her family’s connection to a woman named Mamie, whom she and her sister dubbed Granny. “When my mom and dad first married, they lived in an apartment, and their landlady — her name was Mary, but we called her Mamie — she became like a grandmother to us,” Yearwood recalled. She went on to say,

“And she made these soft teacakes that were just unbelievable.” While Yearwood does not have the original recipe, she and her sister were able to find a similar one from a family friend.

“It’ll be on our Thanksgiving table forever,” she says. “It’s such a memory, and that’s kind of what Thanksgiving is about — making things that remind you of people you care about and sharing them with your fаmily.” ”
