The distinct flavor of chai spices enhance these buttery melt-in-your-mouth shortbread cookies.
Combine butter, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until mixture forms a dough.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into 6x1 1/2-inch square log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife; place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla in bowl; stir in enough water for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies; let stand until glaze is set. Sprinkle with decorator sugar, if desired.

Fantastic shortbread! I had to add a bit more water to the glaze but use your judgement. I made full recipe and baked half and saved the other half for closer to the holidays. I all didn't have allspice, it's fine if you add a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg.
