Total Time


1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 tablespoon milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons instant chai tea latte mix

1/3 cup sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 1/2 cup sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add 2 tablespoons chai mix; knead into dough, using hands, until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; shape each half into 8-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine 1/3 cup sugar and remaining chai mix in bowl; set aside.

  5. STEP 5

    Cut logs into 1/8-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-9 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.

Tip #1

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.
