Chai Cookies Recipe

Chai Cookies

Roadside tea merchants in India, called Chai Wallahs, served a delicious combination of strong tea, exotic spices and warm milk, long before latte became popular.

Ingredients

1 2/3 cup sugar
1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons instant chai tea latte mix

Directions

Combine 1 cup sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add 4 tablespoons chai mix; knead into dough by hand until well mixed.

Divide dough into fourths; shape each into 8-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 2/3 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons chai mix in small bowl; set aside.

Cut logs into 1/8-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Sprinkle cookies with sugar mixture while warm. Cool completely. Sprinkle cookies with sugar mixture again when cooled.

Recipe Tip

Refrigerating dough before cutting into slices makes it more manageable. It also creates more tender cookies since the dough has to be handled less than room temperature dough.
