Chai Birch Logs
Get started!



1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

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 semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil

 *Substitute 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat until well mixed. (Mixture will be crumbly.)

  3. STEP 3

    Divide mixture into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into 12-inch rope on lightly floured surface. Cut rope into 2-inch logs. Place, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 11-15 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets. Cool 15 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Place candy coating in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted and smooth. Frost tops and sides of logs; place onto waxed paper. Let stand until set.

  5. STEP 5

    Place chocolate chips and oil in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Dip fork into melted chocolate, drizzling chocolate crosswise over logs. Let stand until set.

Tip #1

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.

Tip #3

A small offset spatula is inexpensive and works great for spreading the coating over the cookies.
