Blog Chai Spice Cookies

Chai is simply the word used throughout much of Asia for tea, but in America it has become synonymous with a type of tea steeped in a combination of milk and water, sweetened generously, and flavored with warm spices, such as cinnamon and cardamom. The more accurate name for this type of beverage is masala chai. A good cup of chai balances the strong flavors of tannic black tea and pungent spices with the mildness of milk and honey, and drinking it is a satisfying and soothing experience. In this week's recipe, traditional chai spices work well together against the backdrop of a plain butter cookie dough, enhanced with brown sugar. These cookies taste like a more subtle gingerbread, and taste good whether plain or iced with a tea-infused glaze. Enjoy!

My favorite shapes for Chai Spice Cookies are the Teapot cookie cutter, the Tea Cup cookie cutter, and the Cow cookie cutter.
