Recipe Roundup: Chai Cookies....So delicious

This past weekend while a winter storm dropped inches and inches of the white stuff, I found a few minutes to do a bit of baking. And I knew exactly what I wanted to make...Chai Cookies. My daughter had made them over the holidays and I fell in love. How could I not? They were made up of two of my favorite things--cookies and tea. What an awesome combination. ;-) So I thought I'd share them with you. 

Chai Cookies (makes 36)

Ingredients:

  • Sugar Cookie dough (either one ready-to-go roll from the grocery store or one batch of your favorite)
  • 3 tsp Chai mix
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup pecans pieces

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In medium bowl, hand break pecan halves into pieces.
  4. Add ½ cup flour, 2 tsp Chair mix and cookie dough.
  5. Mix by hand until well combined.
  6. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
  7. Using thumb or palms, flatten the ball slightly. Place on baking sheet, leaving 1 inch spacing.
  8. Bake for approximately 14 minutes.
  9. In a small dish, mix 1 cup powdered sugar and the remaining tsp of chair mix.
  10. Cool cookies for 5 minutes.
  11. Roll cookie in the powder sugar mix and then place on cooling rack.

Enjoy!!! :-)
