“Tea makes everything better!” ~ Throw in a cookie and we’re perfect. 🙂
We have to admit something…we are total sugar addicts.
And Chai addicts.
When you combine the two…oh man is it heaven!
That’s why when we found this awesome Chai Snickerdoodle recipe we just had to try it around the office. You know, at tea time – or whenever we could sneak off to the kitchen to make a cup of Chai and sneak a cookie without getting caught.
You can’t overdose on Chai, right? I don’t think so…so if you’re a Chai lover like us then here’s the recipe for you to try yourself. 🙂
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), room temperature
1 1/2 cup sugar
For the Chai Sugar:
5 Tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper (or a silicone baking mat).
In a medium bowl mix dry ingredients together – flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugar using a stand mixer (or your trusty hand mixer). Add eggs one at a time, mixing between each addition.
Next slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the Chai sugar mix.
Form the dough into large balls, roll in the Chai sugar mix and place on your prepared baking sheets. Don’t forget to leave room between them for the cookies to spread as they bake!
Bake for approximately 14 minutes (or until the edges just barely start to brown). Let the cookies cool slightly on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days, if they all don’t get eaten first!
Get your baking on!
These cookies are wonderful – have a nice warm and spicy flavor so similar to the drink. You just can’t help but pair them with it.
If we’ve tempted you enough you can now make your own, just don’t forget to make a nice steaming cup of Chai to go with!
