3/4 cup sugar
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons instant unsweetened tea powder
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
6 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), chopped
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
Don’t worry about making even lines of chocolate over the logs as natural birch bark has thick and thin lines that are black in color.
A small offset spatula is inexpensive and works great for spreading the coating over the cookies.
