I used to work right next to a Panera, and I have to admit, I got a little addicted to their chai tea. It was just too tempting after a brisk walk to work on a cold morning. (Luckily, I was able to kick the habit pretty quickly when I realized how pricey it was getting.) But I still love the flavors of chai tea, so for this year's annual cookie exchange, I found this recipe on Betty Crocker's website. These cookies are super flavorful but aren't super sweet--even after being rolled in powdered sugar. If that is your thing, then perfect! Next time though, I might forgo the powdered sugar and dip them in white chocolate, because, well, I like my cookies super sweet.
Of course, that didn't stop me from eating some! Nom, nom, nom!
A couple of notes about this recipe, I doubled it and only got about 64 cookies (not 96). Even though I doubled it, I didn't double the powdered sugar mix and still had plenty. The cardamon spice is sort of pricey, but I plan on making a chai tea mix in the near future, so the spices won't go to waste. I also found these tasted the best one day after baking. This is a unique little cookie, perfect for those chilly winter days, or for a homemade gift this Christmas, so head on over to Better Crocker's site and check them out!
