1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons instant spice chai latte mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons instant spice chai latte mix
2 teaspoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine 1/2 cup butter, sugar, 2 tablespoons chai mix and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. (Mixture will be somewhat crumbly.)

Pat mixture evenly into ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.

Combine all frosting ingredients except half & half in small bowl. Add enough half & half for desired icing consistency. Spread over cooled shortbread. Cut into bars.

Recipe Tip

- Chai tea is a sweet, spicy tea popular in India. The combination of black tea, milk and ground spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cardamom gives it a warm, fragrant taste. Look for the instant spice chai latte mix in the tea and coffee aisle of the supermarket.

- To make it easier to remove shortbread, line pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. When shortbread has cooled, use foil to lift shortbread from pan.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Cookies are rather nondescript. The chocolate frosting overwhelms the taste of chai. I would increase chai and decrease chocolate amounts by same amounts in recipe.
