Kind of like a spicy mexican wedding cake. Coated with spiced powdered sugar. Go ahead, try them, you won't be disappointed. I was skeptical, then I was plesantly surprized.

I believe this recipe came from a Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook Holiday Edition.

How to Make Chai-Spiced Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
    In large bowl, beat butter and 1/2 c. powdered sugar with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients.
  • 2Shape dough by *tablespoonfuls into balls. On ungreased cookie sheet, place dough balls 1 1/2 inch apart.

    I always line my cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • 3Bake 12-15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.
  • 4FOR THE COATING: In medium bowl, mix coating ingredients. Working in batches, gently roll warm cookies in coating mixture. Cool on cooling rack 5 minutes. Roll in coating mixture again.
  • 5*To measure 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie, use a #60 cookie scoop (it looks like an ice cream scoop.)
