Chai Tea Cookies with Eggnog Frosting
|SUGAR COOKIE DOUGH|
|1 1/2 c||sugar|
|1/2 tsp||orange extract|
|3 c||self-rising flour *** see note below|
|1||chai tea bag|
|1 Tbsp||ground cinnamon|
|1 c||powdered sugar|
|2 Tbsp||egg nog|
|1/2 tsp||ground nutmeg|
NOTE REGARDING SELF-RISING FLOUR -
|if you do not have self-rising flour for the cookie dough, for each cup needed, put 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder into a 1 cup measuring cup and add all-purpose flour to make a total of 1 cup ingredient.|
This sounded so good - and I was not disspointed! This recipe makes a delicious cookie. The flavor is subtle and wonderful. I liked it just as well without the frosting, but the frosting definitely adds a sweet, extra boost of eggnog flavor!
This is a recipe that came from Southern Living's holiday edition of their magazine, but it calls for a packaged sugar cookie mix, and I opted to make it from scratch. The sugar cookie recipe comes from "Taste of Home Cookies" cookbook.
